From the Paper:

"There is increasing accountability in public schools in terms of answering to learning disabilities of children, especially those with special needs. Special needs education refers to the guidance or instruction of students with disabilities or who are at risk for poor educational outcomes, particularly, children with low achievement, those who have dropped out of schools, and those who present with antisocial behavior that interferes with effective instruction (Reschly, Smartt, Oliver and Holdheide, 2008). Federal initiatives and recent reform movements have brought about policies such as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001 which reiterates the public schools' responsibility in ensuring the progress of every child, including those with disabilities."
