Abstract

This comment examines the case law which has developed around the "mainstreaming" provision of the EHA. It focuses on the fact that placement decisions made by school districts are nearly always upheld, regardless of the desires of parents or handicapped students. The author contends that this inequity does not properly respect the role of parents under the EHA, as advocates for their handicapped children. The author concludes by developing a factor test to determine the appropriate placement for a handicapped student when the degree of mainstreaming is the only issue before a reviewing court.
