The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) has mandated students with disabilities receive a Free and Appropriate Education (FAPE) in their Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). Research has unmasked a pattern of placement in more restrictive setting placements based on pre-existing programming. The study explores the effects the presence of self-contained programing has on the implementation of LRE and cumulative placement rates (CPR) in select Minnesota public elementary schools.
