Addressing the Special Education Crisis
Amprey, Walter G.
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v2 n2 p30-31 Sum 2005
In the author's past work as a superintendent, and in his current capacity as an educational consultant, he has seen hundreds of dollars (per special education student) wasted in unnecessary costs and lost funding opportunities resulting from out-of-date, ineffective management systems. In addition to the fiscal implications, this imposes considerable costs to teachers and students every year. The solution according to Amprey, is technology. Technology-based systems can reduce the administrative burden of special education paperwork and compliance, reduce costs, increase accountability, and achieve mandated gains. This article offers some examples that drive home this point.
