ABSTRACT
The article reports that the National Education Association in the United States has published the report, "Education for All Handicapped Children: Consensus, Conflict, and Challenge," which indicates the reactions of educators, citizen groups and legislators to the criteria of Public Law 94-142. The most frequent criticism was on the huge demands on teacher time caused by individualized education program conferences, staff planning, paper work and in-service training. Suggestions include flexible scheduling, reduction of teacher-student contact, and weighted enrollments based on the severity of the handicap.
