As a direct result of the implementation of the Individual Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the “No Child Left Behind” (NCLB) Act, we are presented with changing focuses and challenges in the school setting. The IDEA and NCLB, current education budget cuts, high workload/caseload numbers, and philosophical differences of opinion regarding our role in literacy are straining our resources and tolerance for change. Simultaneously occurring with these transitions is a raising of the bar for accountability and sound practices based on empirical, evidence-based data.
Fortunately, history has shown us that out of adversity and finding ourselves outside our “comfort zone,” comes ingenuity with new ideas, enhanced energy, enthusiasm and a redirection of resources and commitment. With the issues listed above at the forefront, Division 16 is pleased to be collaborating with Division 1, Language Learning and Education to examine and discuss one of these issues, “best practices” in schools founded in evidence-based research data. We think you will find this issue of Perspectivesinteresting and useful as we, in the school setting, adjust to the current changes and demands in our work environments.
