Directors of Special Education--Executive Directors of Associations for Retarded Citizens: Interactions and Responsibilities. Final Report.
Dyk, James Frederic
The report examines real and perceived role similarities and differences between 139 directors of public school special education programs and 37 executive directors of Association for Retarded Citizens (ARC) programs. Analysis of questionnaires concerning personal data, responsibilities, and communications is presented in tables with percentage comparisons, raw data, and means of weighted response. It is explained that the study's major conclusion was that services for mentally retarded citizens would be enhanced (through avoiding duplication of services and competition for clients) by more frequent communication between the two categories of directors.
