Abstract: This case highlights family and educator conflict about special education placement using the case of Jerry, a student with behavior disorders. Aspiring administrators are invited to consider Jerry’s needs, the desires of his family, the concerns of local and alternative school faculty, the safety of students and staff, and the provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. They are then asked to determine a suitable course of action and provide a rationale.(Abstract from authors)
