Dispelling Misconceptions: A Rejoinder
Voltz, Deborah L.; Collins, Loucrecia
Teacher Education and Special Education, v34 n1 p79-80 Feb 2011
In this article, the authors present a rejoinder to Drs. Boscardin, Mainzer, and Kealy's response to their article "Preparing Special Education Administrators for Inclusion in Diverse, Standards-Based Contexts: Beyond the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium" (ISLLC; Voltz & Collins, 2010). Boscardin, Mainzer, and Kealy present a thorough review of the 2009 CEC Standards for Administrators of Special Education, which were not available at the time that these authors' original paper was drafted. In the original article, these authors highlighted what they saw as gaps in both the CEC (2003) and ISLLC (Council of Chief State School Officers, 2008) standards with respect to issues pertaining to staff recruitment/retention, equity, instructional leadership, collaboration, and assessment, particularly as these issues relate to inclusion in diverse, standards-based settings. In their response to this article, Boscardin, Mainzer, and Kealy describe the validation process for the 2009 CEC standards, highlight ways in which they differ from the 2003 CEC standards, and offer ways they believe the 2009 CEC standards are responsive to concerns raised. Although these authors agree with Boscardin, Mainzer, and Kealy that the 2009 CEC standards do address some of their earlier concerns, they feel that areas remain that warrant further consideration. They briefly outline these areas in this article.
