A Tiger by the Tail: Dilemma for Special Education by Leonard T Curtis( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Discussed are ideas concerning the basic assumptions, the needs, and necessary future changes of special education. Social realities with which special education must cope are summarized: polarization of society, population growth, new expectations, the knowledge explosion, change in role and function of the family, depersonalization of behavior patterns, and economic limitations. Examination of the role of special education as related to the total social matrix of American life is urged, as is avoidance of separation from the mainstream of American education. Problems in special education pointed out include lack of personnel, use of categories or labels, definition of role and scope, and relationship to regular education. Alternatives, or possible solutions to some of these problems, suggested are rejection of the self-contained classroom as the basic model for special education, adoption of a multi-factoral model (similar to what is now called the resource room), and adoption of the total concept of the differentiated staffing process, which would provide for individualized education by abolishing special education labels and concepts such as grade level.

An analysis of the differences between sub-groups in a small California high school by Leonard T Curtis( )

1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

It was the purpose of this study to make a preliminary analysis of the three sub-groups in a small California high school. The three sub-groups offered an unique opportunity to study some of the implications of mobility and military living on youth. Specifically, this study attempted to explore the basic educational and psychological differences of the three sub-groups. The three sub-groups were: (1) those children whose fathers were in the United States Air Force; (2) those children whose fathers were employed in the State Prison Service; (3) the remainder of the students, who will be referred to as the gamma group for the remainder of this study. Six basic hypothesis were set up to be tested. The six hypothesis were as follows: l. The children of the military fathers will have a higher average I.Q. as measured by the California Test of Mental Maturity. 2. The children of the military and prison-working father will show a greater degree of anti-democratic concepts as measured by the F scale. 3. The children of the military will s how a greater degree of psychological insecurity as measured by the Bernreuter Personality Inventory. 4. The grade point average of the military children will be higher than that of the other two groups. 5. The children of the military will show a greater degree of extroversion as measured by the Bernreuter Personality Inventory. 6. The children· of the military will show greater achievement as measured by the standardized tests. The basic problem was to explore these six hypotheses in relation to the three basic groups
