Charter Schools and Students with Disabilities: Review of Existing Data - November 1998
Annotated Bibliography on Charter Schools and Special Education
American Federation of Teachers. (1996). Charter school laws: Do they measure up? Washington, DC: Author.
    Based on the AFT criteria for effective charter legislation, this report analyzes the legislation in 25 states. These criteria reflect accessibility to all students, high academic standards, standardized methods for assessing student performance, collective bargaining agreements for staff, certification of teachers, approval of local school districts, and reporting requirements. None of the state laws met all of the criteria. Although special education was not identified as a particular point of analysis, it was addressed in several of the criteria. For example, effective legislation should start with explicit language that ensures participation of all public school students. Schools that target students on the basis of academic or athletic ability are risking discrimination against students with disabilities. Likewise, schools that recruit "at-risk" students are not inclusive if the definition of "at-risk" is vague. Strategies for assessing student performance need to be adapted to reflect the unique learning styles and curricular needs of students with disabilities. School reporting should include student demographics that reflect the special needs of its students.

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.

ISSUE BRIEF Minnesota Children with Special Health Needs Division of Family Health Vol. 1. No. 1. January 1998 Managed Care: Considerations for Serving
Children with Special Health Needs Background
There are 259,000 children with special health needs in Minnesota. These are children who have a chronic condition expected to last more than a year causing either a limitation in function, activity or social role; dependency on medication, special diet, medical technology, assistive device or personal assistance to compensate for or minimize limitation of function; or who need medical care or related services over and above the usual for their age. Some of the children have invisible conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy, mental retardation, serious emotional disorder, or asthma; some have visible conditions such as Down syndrome, cerebral palsy or cleft lip and palate. Children with special health needs live, learn, work, play and actively participate in community life throughout our state. They do so because the families, neighbors, teachers, and health providers who touch their lives have joined to create an environment where the special needs of these children can be successfully met within their families and communities. With support which recognizes the unique strengths and needs of each child and family, the children thrive, grow and contribute to our communities. Through our local and state policy makers, the citizens of Minnesota have established a priority to develop a comprehensive, community-based, family-centered system of care to meet the needs of children with chronic illnesses and disabilities and their families. The system is a delicate web of family caregivers, community resources, providers, private payers and public programs. We are now entering an era of change and uncertainty as some threads of that web are altered. We must assure that our system of care, consisting of our health, education and human services systems, work together so the needs of vulnerable children are met.

Lutheran Special Education Ministries is providing the services for many Christian schools across the nation to keep their doors open.
