Educational Policy and Research with Reference to Educable Mentally Retarded Pupils in Israel.
Milgram, Norman A.
Through review of the research the paper contends that the policy in Israel with respect to special education for educable mentally handicapped students has been based on the prevailing cultural "zeitgeist" rather than on research and evaluation of current and past programs; that the modest amount of research that has been done in Israel does not justify recent changes in the educational policy; and that it is in the best interest of pupils, teachers, parents, and society as a whole that there be closer cooperation between those who determine and institute educational policy and those who empirically evaluate current and contemplated programs.
