Charting New Directions: A Budget Analysis of the Division of Special Education.
Willner, Robin; And Others
The study by the Educational Priorities Panel, a coalition of 25 parent and civic organizations serving as an independent fiscal watchdog over New York City's Board of Education, examines the expenditures of the special education budget. Findings and recommendations are presented for each of four chapter topics (sample recommendations in parentheses): organization of the Division of Special Education (reorganization to allow greater coordination with regular education); growth and construction of the special education budget (more frequent administration of licensing tests for teachers, supervisors, and administrators); the current budget (coordination of itinerant special education guidance counselors); and expenditures (application of strict budget modification and position controls).
