The Microeconomics of Referral and Reintegration: A Paradigm for Evaluation of Special Education.
Gerber, Michael M.; Semmel, Melvyn I.
Studies in Educational Evaluation, v11 n1 p13-29 1985
A microeconomic paradigm is proposed for the evaluation of special education in schools. The special education process is described in three phases: referral to special education by the classroom teacher; special classroom program; and mainstreaming. The relationship between referral by teachers, classroom resources, and students' desirable outcomes is examined. The need for national policy formation is briefly discussed. (GDC)
