Reviewing the Knowledge Base of Special Education Leadership and Administration from 1970-2009
Crockett, Jean B.; Becker, Mallory K.; Quinn, David
Journal of Special Education Leadership, v22 n2 p55-67 Sep 2009
The purpose of this study is to review how special education administration and leadership has been conceptualized over time and to examine the extent to which current calls for preparing educational leaders to address diversity, teamwork, and technology are manifested in the literature. To that end, the authors provide an analysis of 474 article abstracts published in professional journals from 1970 to the first quarter of 2009. This sample of abstracts represents an illustrative rather than a comprehensive collection of articles, and the use of different search terms and strategies might yield different results. The authors identify and discuss conceptual themes and historical trends in this literature that reflect the influence of policy and professional practice over four decades. (Contains 11 figures and 1 table.)
