Just what special education is, who gets it or who should get it, and why it is necessary are matters that relatively few teachers, parents, school administrators, or educators of teachers can explain accurately or with much confidence. In this brief booklet, Hallahan & Kauffman help education students build a foundation of understanding, to fashion a realistic, rational view of the basic assumptions and knowledge on which special education rests.

Good information, but very brief. It's great if you want an overview, but you'll be dissatisfied if you want the nitty gritty. Read full review
