Principles of IDEA and NCLB

There are six key principles behind IDEA and NCLB that you have learned about over the past five weeks:

Six principles of IDEA:
  1. Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)
  2. Appropriate Evaluation 
  3. Individualized Education Program (IEP) 
  4. Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) 
  5. Parent/Student participation in decision making 
  6. Procedural Safeguards
Six principles of NCLB:
  1. Accountability for results
  2. School safety 
  3. Parental choice 
  4. Teacher quality 
  5. Scientifically-based methods of teaching 
  6. Local flexibility
Select two principles from IDEA and two principles from NCLB that you believe are the most important elements in these two laws.  Then, write a Final Paper in which you compare and contrast the principles you’ve selected, specifically in regards to children with disabilities.  Explain how the principles you’ve selected from IDEA complement principles from NCLB. Explain how the selected principles from IDEA differ from the principles in NCLB.  Applying what you have learned about the demographics in the school district researched during Week Three, how does each of the principles positively benefit the specific population you researched for that assignment?  Describe how these principles act as a hindrance to that specific population.  Finally, create a minimum of three suggestions on how to improve the effectiveness of NCLB and IDEA specific to students with disabilities.
