Special Education Teachers: Technicians or Educators?
Iano, Richard P.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v23 n8 p462-65 Oct 1990
The paper argues that prevailing models of teaching in special education rely on a technical conception of teaching, whereas technical skills should play a subsidiary role in service to teachers' broader understanding of the meaning of education and to their creative skills in bringing about experiences rich in educational potential.
