California Master Plan for Special Education.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
Reported is California's master plan for providing a quality educational program to all of the state's handicapped children. Topics covered include a definition of special education, interaction between special education and general education, and a look at California's programs including new directions and current weaknesses. Presented are a philosophy and nine goals of special education, and a list of six guidelines for implementing those goals. The nature and criteria (such as providing for differential grouping) of a comprehensive special educational plan are outlined, and responsibilities of state, district, and local officials are enumerated. A new classification system which groups "individuals with exceptional needs" under four subclassifications is outlined. Objectives are listed for eight supportive and instructional program components (such as special transportation services and a resource specialist program). Also delineated are objectives and guidelines for evaluation of the program, development of a financial model for special education funding (including coordination of federal resources), and personnel planning and development.
