Toward a Comprehensive System of Inservice Training in Special Education. A Monograph in Two Sections: I. Issues and Problems in Inservice Education. II. Designing and Implementing Statewide Inservice Training Programs.
Altman, Reuben
The monograph provides an overview of inservice education issues related to P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act; and considers approaches to designing and implementing statewide inservice training programs. Considered in the first section are the following topics: inservice provisions of P.L. 94-142; the proliferation of innovative practices; the role of inservice in personnel development; and the role of state, university, and local agencies in inservice. Among other issues addressed are accountability, fiscal difficulties, and implications of full or "life" certification. Ambiguities in P.L. 94-142 regulations, manpower distribution trends, and difficulties in relationships among agencies are included in a discussion of problems influencing inservice education. The second section focuses on the design and implementation of inservice training programs. The following aspects are examined (sample subtopics in parentheses): administering statewide inservice (organizing and managing the system); determining inservice needs (motivating participation and establishing inservice priorities); determining optimal systems (identifying and categorizing delivery modes and matching inservice modes to conditions); and evaluating and providing followup.
