The Principal in Special Education: The Teacher's Perspectives.
Bonds, Charles W.; Lindsey, John R.
Using the results of 50 returned surveys, the study examined the beliefs of elementary and secondary school teachers concerning what they think the principal does in special education, with particular emphasis on the mandates of P.L. 94-142 (the Education for All Handicapped Children Act). Among findings were the following: nearly half stated that the principals offered suggestions for classroom arrangement, very few principals served on the advisory or placement committee, many social and civic organizations provided auxiliary services for special needs students, and the principals knew more about the law than they shared with teachers. A copy of the survey instrument is included. (SB)
