How Administrators Understand Learning Difficulties: A Qualitative Analysis.
Allinton, Richard L.; McGill-Franzen, Anne; Schick, Ruth
Remedial and Special Education, v18 n4 p223-32 Jul-Aug 1997
Interviews were conducted with school administrators in six school districts identified as having increasing rates of retention in grade, transitional-grade placements, and identification of students as having disabilities. Virtually all explanations offered by the administrators placed the school outside the central sphere of influence and offered few ideas for altering general education to better meet needs of at-risk children.
