Overview

With the advent of inclusion, almost all administrators will face special education issues. This text for educational administration covers nine topics that relate to inclusive education (e.g., conflict, program evaluation, fiscal issues, discipline). Each chapter is arranged around a real-life case study to stimulate discussion, problem solving, and decision making. The text provides well-organized, practical information often given only a brief "once-over" in most educational administration textbooks.

Inclusive Educational Administration covers what all administrators should know about how special education works. The book is designed for both Special Education Administration and regular Educational Administration courses since school administrators rarely get training in inclusive/special education administration or in the handling of inclusive and special education situations.
