Getting Students Into the Mainstream

pp. 45—48

In the Camden County Vocational and Technical School System, special needs education is one of four basic divisions along with the day high school, post secondary, and evening school. New Jersey law states that, whenever possible, handicapped students should be “grouped with and/or participate with non-handicapped children in activities that are part of their educational programs.” Camden County Vocational School operates on this philosophy to bring handicapped students into the mainstream of vocational education. At the present time,Camden County Vocational and Technical School has enrolled 800special education students, is considered one of the largest programs in vocational education for the handicapped in the country,and has been recognized by the U. S. Office of Education as one of the most successful programs of its kind.
