We Speak for Children. Second Report, Governor's Advocacy Commission on Children and Youth.
Ross, Lee, Ed.
Presented is the second report of the North Carolina Governor's Advocacy Commission on Children and Youth which examines problems of state agency programs for handicapped and normal children. Copies of letters sent with the report to various state officials and the governor are provided. Listed are names of commission members, commission staff, and advisory review panel members. Noted are commission objectives to make recommendations for more effective programs and the long-range importance of the observed problems. Problems of state agency coordination are reported in the areas of planning, screening, genetic counseling, special education, and personnel. Program gaps are seen in areas such as student rights and responsibilities, school exclusions, home-based programs, accident prevention, and use of private resources. Mentioned among issues of concern to the commission are use of corporal punishment and rights of juveniles. Major recommendations are concerned with problems such as the lack of coordination on common program operations by departments and agencies; the lack of a common format among departments and agencies for budget, program planning, and objectives; and the failure to provide certain needed services and programs.
