According to Mitchell L. Yell, 2016, Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that school officials could exclude a student with disabilities. According to school officials about the student in question "The student's condition caused drooling, facial contortions, and speech problems. School officials claimed this condition nauseated the teachers and other students, required too much teacher time, and negatively affected school discipline and progress." (Mitchell L. Yell, 2016)
This case did not enforce equal rights for educating students with special needs because they were distracting to the general education students. This foreshadows "segregated classes" for special needs classes. By grouping like students together in smaller class sizes, teachers can spend more time on individuals and can study specialized techniques for working with and understanding students with special needs.
