Summary "As a tribute to scholar and mentor James M. Kauffman and his prodigious influence on the education of children and youth with disabilities, Achieving the Radical Reform of Special Education highlights and examines issues central to the continued growth and maturation of the field of special education. This impressive collection features the issues Kauffman has raised pointedly and repeatedly in his writing over the past three decades. With contributions by prominent scholars, essays throughout the book provide a valuable synopsis of the status of special education and its progress toward the achievement of radical reform at the outset of the 21st century."--Publisher's website
