Special Education Leadership Series. Volume I: Decategorization and Performance-Based Systems. Volume II: Special Education in Court.
Johnson, Richard A., Ed.; And Others
The purpose of the annual leadership conferences is to establish a continuing forum to stimulate dialogue among special education leadership personnel from the public schools, university training programs, and state education agencies. A critical factor in the selection of topics was the recognition that leaders in the field must design their programs to contain internal change systems that prohibit static programming. Papers included in the first volume were related to the emerging need to develop services and training systems defined as noncategorical and performance-based rather than categorical and etiologically based. The second volume includes papers that deal with the implications of recent litigation and court findings for the development and conduct of special education leadership systems. (Author/MLF)
