- "Children with disabilities, their parents, teachers, administrators, advocates, attorneys, and adult educators, all have a key role to play in the micro-politics of special education. The children - in the middle - are pivotal in the growing special education saga. This book brings together people with disabilities and others who advocate for their cause with expertise in special education law, administration, severe and profound disabilities, ethics, foundations, finance, teaching, disability rights, and culture. All these people work together to develop an awareness that beyond the administrative aspects of special education and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) are micro-political issues that affect how children with disabilities are educated."-- Provided by publisher.
