North Carolina Public Schools: A Status Report of the Program for Educable Mentally Retarded Children.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Special Education.
The status of the North Carolina public school program for educable mentally retarded (EMR) children is reported. Data obtained from state report forms and teacher completed questionnaires describe administration, teachers, pupils, and curriculum. Four tables on the administrative setting present a summary by years of numbers of teachers and pupils in the EMR program, personnel responsible for local unit coordination of special education programs, level of EMR classes, and availability of sequential programs. Eight tables on EMR teachers treat age, type of certificate, training in special education, college attended, EMR and other teaching experience, inservice training, and teacher's aides (hours per day). On EMR pupils, three tables give age range of classes, IQ ranges (with a graphic representation), and tests used for screening. Six tables on curriculum give subject areas taught, methods and materials used, secondary classes with work placement programs, regular nonacademic attendance at the secondary level, and regular class subjects in which EMR students participated. North Carolina services are compared to those of six other states in an additional table. Eight recommendations are presented. Appendixes provide the EMR teacher questionnaire and the class report form. (BW)
