Strategies for Democratizing the Special Education Leadership Workforce
Nevin, Ann; Barbetta, Patricia; Cramer, Elizabeth
Online Submission, Paper presented at the AERA Division K-6 Symposium (San Francisco, CA, Apr, 2006)
The authors evaluated the procedures designed to recruit qualified applicants from traditionally under-represented populations into a special education doctoral program. A review of the literature revealed that candidates from culturally and linguistically diverse populations were more likely to enroll in doctoral work when universities used expanded recruitment procedures, enhanced admissions processes, and provision of financial support. The descriptive study employed a survey methodology to collect the reactions of sometimes marginalized groups of doctoral students. The study has implications for the production of a culturally inclusive profession. (Contains 3 tables.)
