Seizing the Opportunity: Educating Students with Disabilities in Charter Schools
Researchers at CRPE and the National Center for Special Education in Charter Schools (NCSECS) spent 12 months studying charter schools that are getting results in educating students with disabilities.
We found schools using their flexibility to put students at the center of everything they do. Leaders committed to meeting every student's individual needs. Teachers blurred the lines between special and general education and worked together to solve problems. Parents were full partners in setting learning goals for their children.
A new resource bank of school profiles includes concrete examples that can help any student improve instruction of students with disabilities.
