Commentary: A Response to "Preparing Special Education Administrators for Inclusion in Diverse, Standards-Based Contexts," by Deborah L. Voltz and Loucrecia Collins (2010)
Boscardin, Mary Lynn; Mainzer, Richard; Kealy, Mary V.
Teacher Education and Special Education, v34 n1 p71-78 Feb 2011
The purpose of this commentary is to respond to the article written by Voltz and Collins (2010) that considered the preparation of special education administrators for inclusion in diverse, standards-based contexts by highlighting the Administrator of Special Education Standards that were adopted in 2009 by the Council for Exceptional Children. The authors of the present article agree that the 2003 Administrator of Special Education Standards used in Voltz and Collins's article were not responsive to the contemporary demands of educating students with exceptionalities and serving families from diverse backgrounds. The authors also agree with Voltz and Collins that administrators of special education need to be prepared to lead in settings that serve children with disabilities from diverse backgrounds. In their response, the authors highlight the features of the 2009 standards that they believe address the concerns with the 2003 standards that Voltz and Collins raised in their article.
