Summary

Reported were the results of a telephone interview survey of all the state directors of special education, the director of special education of the District of Columbia, and 40 administrators of local districts which considered topics such as current problems and issues, outstanding programs, personnel training, identification and diagnosis of children, and program evaluation. Seen as the most controversial issue was mainstreaming and the labeling or categorizing the disabilities. Effectiveness of programs was the area most frequently given to be of highest research priority. Finding well trained, competent staff was reported to be the most difficult problem of special education administrators. Approximately half of the state directors reported 50% or more of their exceptional children currently being served while six state directors thought that less than 25% were being served. Thirty-five state directors cited emotionally disturbed children as being the most difficult for which to program. (DB)
