Public Law 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975, was implemented during the 1977-1978 school year. Its primary goal was to provide free, appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment for all handicapped children. PL 94-142 made the state responsible for ensuring that services be provided. School districts could receive program funds from the federal government by providing evidence that procedures had been established to ensure parental rights for participation in assessment, placement and reassessment of their handicapped child.
