Available and Potential Resources for Personnel Preparation in Special Education: Deans Survey.
Gallagher, James J.; Staples, Amy
Deans of schools of education (N=249) answered a survey probing current resources, plans for expansion, incentives needed for expanding personnel resources, and barriers to program development in special education programs covering the needs of infants and toddlers. Almost half reported no special education program at any level, but 40% reported willingness to consider initiation or expansion of such a program given adequate incentives. Lacks of funding and qualified faculty were seen as major barriers. Subsidies, planning at the state level, and a major recruitment effort were seen as promising policy options to remedy these problems. Contains six references. (PB)
