EDAL 541 - Special Education Leadership

(3cr) The course explores the role of school administration and leadership in special education. This course is designed to provide administration and other special education stakeholders with a basic understanding of key points in the history of special education law and policy. It focused primarily on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and its core concepts with particular attention to Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). This course provides a working knowledge of IDEA’s procedural requirements, the preferred practices associated with implementing the procedures in schools, criticism of these practices and their implementation, and ideas for addressing these criticisms in ways that promote more equitable and inclusive special education practices.
