Brown vs. Board of Education
Brown vs. Board of Education is the first case to set a positive example for educators in relation to the rights of the students.  This case acknowledges the fact that an African American student should be able to white student’s schools. This case was so exemplary because it was the first case to set a standard of integration instead of segregation. Brown vs. Board of Education is such a famous case because it not only gave African American students a right to a better education; it also paved the way for disable students to receive an equal education as well. With the passing of this law African American and disabled students could attend school with the white students. It was no longer prohibited for whites to attend an African American school and African Americans could attend a white school. Parc v. The commonwealth of Pennsylvania

PARC vs. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is another important case that affects the equal inclusion of students with disabilities.   This case caused all students, from the ages of 6 through 21, with disabilities to be provided free public education. The lawyers for this case argued that education cannot be defined as only the provision of academic experiences for children (Gollnick & Chinn, 2006), children with disabilities should benefit from education, and they can’t deny students with disabilities an education. Courts mandated that it is most desirable to educate children with mental retardation in programs that are like those that are provided to their peers without disabilities. This allowed for students with disabilities to be allowed in the same class as students without disabilities. Mills v. Board of Education
