The Role of the Public School Administrator Related to Special Education Programs. Proceedings of the Special Study Institute (Westchester County, New York, November 13-15, 1969).
Nineteen general education administrators with no special education training or experience, the majority of them building principals, attended a special study institute. There they participated in the SEATS (Special Education Administration Task Simulation) Game, developed by Daniel Sage for use in training special education administrators. A semantic differential test of 10 concepts depicting issues in special education (integration and coordination) was administered at the beginning and end of the institute: change in the desired direction resulted for nine of the concepts and statistically significant change for three of them. On an interview schedule given at the institute's close, a number of participants made verbal commitments to actual behavioral changes. (JD)
