In this highly readable new book, pre- and in-service special and general education leaders get a comprehensive overview of the issues and challenges they face, along with viable options for choosing and implementing effective practices, resolving problems, and developing policies that work. Leadership Practices for Special and General Educators by Gloria Campbell-Whatley and James Lyons is clear, practical, authentic, and not overly theoretical. Recognizing the challenges involved in deciphering the federal statutes and regulations that govern special education, the authors present the material in a manner that lets the reader "cut to the chase" and readily get the gist of pertinent issues that relate to special education. Legal, practical, and logistical issues are covered, along with issues relating to sensitivity, fairness, and empathy and parental perceptions.
