The article presents information on education of handicapped in the New York State. The Fleischmann Commission on Education estimated that more than 200,000 handicapped children are not receiving any special services in New York at present. In an effort to alter this situation, the New York State Board of Regents issued a position paper to assure the right of each handicapped child to attend a publicly supported educational program. In addition, the Regents suggested that opportunities for social interaction within the total school environment be provided to establish healthy self-esteem. Handicapped children should be encouraged to share educational experiences with other children throughout the everyday school program.
