ABSTRACT: The report is based on an extensive public-engagement process in New York State. The major findings from the study suggest: under current state and federal education requirements, an adequate educational opportunity should be as a full opportunity for all students to meet Regents Learning Standards; at the present time, students not meeting standards or at risk of not meeting standards are not receiving all of the academic intervention services to which they are entitled by law; similarly special education students are not being supllied with the necessary supplementary aids and services to which they are entitled to succeed in inclusion settings; an educational program that ensures all students a full opportunity to meet Regents Learning Standards and all applicable federal requirements must provide qualified teachers, adequate school facilities, and sufficient and up-to-date material and equipment.
