MS in Special Education




One of the most controversial issues in Special Education today is the placement of students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders (FJBD). Many professionals support inclusion of students with EJBD into the general education environment, while others take a more conservative approach. In order to evaluate educational placement of students with EJBD, research from journal articles and text was conducted to determine if there was any consensus among professionals in the field. The researcher interviewed a number of school professionals, representative of those who might make up a Committee for Special Education (CSE). It was deemed important to hear from real educators from different points of view and perspective. They were all asked about their experience in working with students with EIBD and their viewpoints regarding placement of these students. After investigating this problem, there is no clear cut answer regarding optimal placement of students with EIBD , as each student has his or her own unique needs.
