The major thrust of special education in the 1980's has been to provide educational services to handicapped students in the regular education classroom with non-handicapped students. How successful has the attempt been? In 1973 when Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act and in 1975 when the United States Congress passed Public Law 94-142 that mandated an appropriate education for all handicapped children the term "mainstreaming" was present, but people had no idea what was appropriate mainstreaming.
