Review your state’s department of education website. Identify and describe three resources from the website that are available to schools and teachers in your state regarding compliance with IDEA. How do these resources specifically support students with disabilities and their families? What is your opinion of the site? Was it easy to find? Is it easy to navigate? Do you think families will find it helpful? Why or why not?
In order to be compliant with current education laws and policies relating to individuals with disabilities, it is important to understand their historical context. There have been many education policy changes resulting from court cases, laws, and social movements in society. The laws that have formed special education today will most definitely effect the job of a special education teacher.
