Public Schools are NOT Created Equal
Recently, special education in Arizona charter schools has been the subject of much media attention, largely critical. Newspaper articles describe serious situations in which disabled pupils were allegedly wronged by a charter school. While technically accurate, these allegations are frequently taken out of context, and based on unfounded assumptions, such as the underlying one: all public schools are thought to be created and funded equally. Public district schools and charter schools both offer tuition free education, but in other important ways charter schools are a different breed of education than the conventional district schools. Charter schools are innovative entities established to provide educational choices to children and communities. They represent new opportunities for educators to implement their visions and execute change. They are designed to be UNEQUAL . A major inequity adversely impacting Arizona’s charter schools is financial inequity. According to Arizona’s Joint Legislative Budget Committee (JLBC) in February 2002, charter schools on average receive 25 percent less than their district counterparts for annual per pupil funding. All public schools must comply with all federal special education legislation, including, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Students with disabilities deserve a “free and appropriate” education, and more. It is the public school’s responsibility to provide appropriate educational services to these children. Whether a parent chooses a charter school or a conventional school, accommodations must be made for students with special needs.

A survey of arizona’s charter schools reveals of approximately 7,000 enrolled studentswere special education students meeting the needs of disabled children
Myth #6 : Charter schools promote equity
Reality: There is growing evidence that charter schools promote inequity everywhere they have appeared. Despite their genesis in the political Right, charter school advocates have appropriated the language of the Left: "[The affluent] do not need charter schools. The poor and the disadvantaged, however, have never had such choices. It is they and their children in poor schools and programs who need charter schools." (Freedman, 1996, p. 34) Yet scratch the surface, and it becomes clear that for some proponents of charter schools and other schools of choice, equity is the problem, not the goal. According to John Chubb, the problem with public schools is that they " ‘must take whoever walks in the door.’ " (Kozol, 1993, p. 18) Who Chooses? Who Loses? Culture, Institutions, and the Unequal Effects of School Choice , the available empirical research concludes that "increasing educational choice is likely to increase separation of students by race, social class, and cultural background." (p. 189) The authors found this to be true even when choice programs are designed specifically to reduce inequities (Henig, 1996; Lee, Croninger & Smith, 1996; Martinez, Godwin & Kemerer, 1996; Waterman & Murnane, 1992; Wells, 1996; Witte, 1996) – suggesting that good intentions cannot overcome the gravitational forces of competition applied to schools.

FAX (479) 575-4745 FOR RELEASE WEDNESDAY, JULY 5, 2000 Melissa Blouin, science and research communications manager, (479) 575-5555, Law Professor Lays Out The ABCs For Schools Making Discipline Decisions About Children With Disabilities A University of Arkansas law professor explains how school officials could handle each of these situations, if the children involved were disabled, under the 1997 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Her work appears in the current issue of the Arizona Law Review IDEA was originally designed to help identify children with disabilities and provide them access to education "so that children don’t end up excluded rather than served," said Terry Seligmann, associate professor of law and director of legal research and writing. At the center of IDEA is an individual education plan (IEP) for each student, administered by a team including school officials, counselors, teachers and parents. In the 25 years since its inception, IDEA has changed many things about classroom learning for the better, Seligmann said.

IV. Promising Methods for Teacher Preparation
No one method of instruction can prepare teachers to work effectively with families and communities. Instead, approaches must be comprehensive, integrated, and varied. While the general picture that emerges from the survey of teacher education programs indicates that traditional modes of instruction prevail, the study of nine programs suggests promising innovations in teaching methods. Table 12 illustrates these teaching and learning methods in relation to the framework for teacher preparation in family involvement. These programs utilized guest speakers, role play, the case method, community experiences, research with families and communities, self-reflection, and interprofessional education.

    College is the anticipated fork in the road for many students, but for those with special needs, this shift is far more uncertain. For students who suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD), dyslexia, or another learning disability, what are their postsecondary education options? Several programs and schools have been established to cater specifically to students with disabilities, including Gallaudet University, Landmark College, and the SALT program at the University of Arizona. Founded in 1864 by an act of Congress, Gallaudet University ( in Washington D.C. has been dedicated to the education of the deaf and hard of hearing. The bill was signed by Abraham Lincoln, and Gallaudet College was born. It remained Gallaudet College until 1986, where another act of Congress approved university status. “Gallaudet University remains the only liberal arts University for the deaf in the entire world,” said Mercy Coogan, a university spokesperson. This institution teaches approximately 2000 undergraduate and graduate students; numbers that were previously unimaginable from its initial enrollment of eight students. This upcoming semester, for the second time in the history of Gallaudet, hearing students will be admitted. These students have expressed a good deal of interest and are, of course, fluent in sign language. They are often the children of deaf adults.
