The Chain of Actions in Special Education--The Relationship between National Guidelines and Municipal Follow-Up: An Evaluation Based on a Case Study from One Norwegian Municipality
Nilsen, Sven
International Journal of Special Education, v26 n1 p33-43 2011
This article discusses the chain of actions in special education in Norwegian compulsory school. An analysis is made of how the municipality follows up national guidelines relevant to the chain of actions through its own guidelines to the schools. The analysis gives the general impression that the local authority is facilitating guidance to the schools in a way that accommodates national regulations effectively, thus contributing to a situation in which national laws and regulations for education can be implemented through the different components of the chain of actions. Nonetheless, there appears to be a need for a revision of the guidelines in some areas, including a clearer emphasis on the consideration for inclusive education as well as collaboration among the teaching staff.
