MISSOURI COUNCIL OF ADMINISTRATORS OF SPECIAL EDUCATION
Re-Inventing Special Education
In the winter of 2013, MO-CASE introduced our Re-inventing Special Education project to our membership. MO-CASE described an urgent need for Missouri educators to look deeply at the nature of special education and its relevance and effectiveness in helping today's schools meet current educational challenges. Clearly, public schools in Missouri are very different from the schools that first struggled to understand and implement the requirement of P.L. 94-142 forty years ago. Students with disabilities are no longer routinely excluded from schools or relegated to separate segregated classrooms or buildings. School have accepted, and in most cases, embraced students with disabilities as valued members of the school community. Schools accept responsibility for educating students with even the most challenging disabilities and understand that educating means more than just access to the school building. All students really does mean all for Missouri.
