Nagle, Katherine M.; Crawford, Jinny
Journal of Special Education Leadership, v18 n2 p8-14 Oct 2005
Despite differences in geographic location, district size, and student characteristics, district special education leaders reflected similar views on opportunities and challenges of NCLBA. Challenges included making AYP, meeting the highly qualified teacher requirement, addressing budget shortfalls, aligning of federal policies, predicting the longevity of reform, and gaining timely access to policy guidance. Opportunities included improved prereferral services for struggling students, improvements in performance, and decreases in the number of referrals to special education. (Contains 2 tables.)
