The Role of Race in Special Education Identification

A new, wide-ranging study led by Michigan State University’s Todd Elder finds that a student’s race can play a significant role in whether or not they are identified with a disability.

Elder joins CPRE Knowledge Hub managing editor Keith Heumiller to discuss his study – which analyzed birth and education records for every child born in Florida over a ten-year span – and its potential implications for practitioners, policymakers, and future research.
