A Comparative Analysis of Administrative Role Expectations by Regular and Special Education Personnel.
Hatley, Richard V.; Whitworth, Jerry E.
The report examines the state of the art in the preparation of special education directors and presents findings from questionnaires completed by personnel in 34 Kansas and 39 Missouri districts. Detailed ratings are provided for the importance of knowledge/training/experience on 24 aspects, including fiscal procedures, curriculum development and supervision, staff personnel selection, school law, collective negotiations, school/community relations, and legal issues of special education. Among conclusions drawn are that all categories of personnel have fairly consistent perceptions of the special education administrator's job, and that training in general administrative and special education processes is needed for preparation of a special education director.
