Devlin, Robert J.; And Others
In order to compose a picture of the typical master's level graduate of special education programs at Louisiana State University (Baton Rouge), a follow-up study involving 52 recent graduates was conducted. Each graduate was mailed a questionnaire designed to gather data in five areas: personal information, employment status, financial information, professional and educational information, and student evaluation of the curriculum. Conclusions from survey results included the following: 79 percent of special education graduates were working full time in programs for exceptional children; graduates were working with a variety of children in numerous types of settings; graduates were generally active in professional organizations that serve exceptional children; graduates reported that preservice training contributed positively to job competency; and recommendations for program changes were made such as adding coursework in such areas as remedial reading and counseling.
