L. A. Phelps, T. R. Wermuth, R. L. Crain

To what extent do students with disabilities and disadvantages have full access to vocational education? Which program modifications are most effective in serving these students, and what are the current educational and employment outcomes for students with special needs? This report examines these three central issues using longitudinal and program evaluation data. Several strategies for state planning and policy development are outlined, which illustrate how the new Perkins Act can be used to improve services and outcomes for special population students.
