Miranda: Is it lawful for districts to place all children with the same disabilities in the same type of setting?
For example: All children with Down Syndrome in the district are placed in self-contained classrooms.
Also, any ides as to where to get this type of information regarding placement? I have tried Freedom of Information Act at the city & state level, asking the special education director, and contacting the local advocacy group, as well as google. The response I have gotten is that no one keeps these records because they group children by educational level, not medical diagnosis, but someone must have this information, no?
