Chapter 766: An Analysis of Year One.
Curran, Ronald G.
A study involving Special Education Administrators in each of Massachusetts' 24 school districts was conducted to evaluate the 1974-75 school year implementation of Chapter 766, a landmark special education reform law. Data was collected on school population, special education population, special education budget, CORE Evaluation referral statistics, and CORE Evaluation completion statistics. Among conclusions were the following: most school districts reported change in leadership as a function of administration; expenditures on the targets of change efforts appear not to affect the implementation of that change; and innovative and/or research based change implementation strategies are not generally practiced by most school districts. Findings indicated that variables and procedures which accounted for changes in practice in disciplines other than education, failed to account for such changes in practice within education. (SBH)
