Needed Research in the Organization and Delivery of Special Education Services.
Lilly, Edward R.; And Others
A major concern in the field of special education is the effective delivery of services and their administrative organization. A conceptual definition for "organization" as it applies to special education is developed. Specific areas in special education organization that warrant research are identified and described. Examples include: (1) the need to determine the extent to which organization facilitates or hampers the achievement of stated objectives; (2) the need to determine the impact of coordination of research, teaching, and service delivery upon the effectiveness of special education programs; (3) the impact of the functions of recruiting, employing, training, and evaluating special education personnel on the effectiveness of service delivery; (4) factors in group relationships that influence interpretation and implementation of formal administrative policy in special education; (5) methods for best utilizing and developing the informal relationships of the school. Finally, methods that can be utilized in planning and conducting such research are examined. Some of the difficulties encountered in designing and conducting research on problems in administrative organization are outlined. (JDD)
