ABSTRACT
This article reports that after two days of carefully outlining changes in federal special education policy, Department of Education officials acknowledged that they weren't ready to answer hundreds of specific questions from special educators. The Education Department's office of special education programs planned its annual leadership conference to give school, district, and state special education officials a primer on the regulations covering the 2004 reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the federal law that governs the education of 6.7 million students in special education.
