The State, the Lobbyists, and Special Education Policies in Schools: A Case Study of Decision Making in Texas.
Baxt, Virginia; Brouillette, Liane
Journal of School Leadership, v9 n2 p125-59 Mar 1999
Examined how special-interest groups influence policy formulation at the state level. Researchers interviewed 46 legislators and lobbyists to trace behind-the-scenes decision making, as the Texas Legislature hastily (and misguidedly) crafted an omnibus bill with a per-pupil spending change encouraging the mainstreaming of severely disabled students.
