Local Administrators of Special Needs Programs in Vocational Education.
Krantz, Gordon; Weatherman, Richard
The implications of the 1968 federal Vocational Education Amendments have prompted local programs to create the position of Local Special Needs Administrator (LSNA). The investigation reported here was carried out as the basis for proposing that a training program be developed for Special Needs Administrators. The coordinator or administrator for Special Needs Programs in each of the 50 state education agencies was asked to designate one local program and administrator who could be contacted for this study. Questionnaires were returned by 43 local administrators. The respondents reported their organizational structures, job titles, job duties, and certain opinions about the competencies required in their work. (Author/MLF)
