Abstract:
In 1980 a class action lawsuit--Willie M., et al v. Governor James B. Hunt, Jr., et al.--was brought against the state of North Carolina on behalf of more than 1,100 of the state's most severely handicapped children. Under a court order from the settlement, the state undertook the task of organizing and implementing treatment and educational services at the local level for a group of children in all parts of the state with emotion, mental, or neurological handicaps--the Willie M. Program. Macbeth examines the Willie M. Program after its second year of completion of statewide operations.
