Roberts, Maria B.; Guerra, Federico, Jr.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v16 n1 p43-60 Jan 2017
This mixed methods study used a survey by Frost and Kersten to answer the following questions: (a) Do principals of predominantly Hispanic schools perceive themselves as having adequate knowledge in special education? (b) Which areas are these principals most involved in with special education teachers? (c) What suggestions do these principals have for principal preparation programs? Their most frequent recommendation was instruction in the area of special education laws, Section 504, and Response to Intervention.
