Billingsley, Bonnie S. – Journal of Special Education Leadership, 2010
A growing body of evidence suggests teachers first experiences in the classroom have an impact on their effectiveness, their students' achievement, and the teaching practices they will use for many years.

Lange, Cheryl M.; Rhim, Lauren Morando; Ahearn, Eileen M. – Journal of Special Education Leadership, 2008

Thurlow, Martha; Barrera, Manuel; Zamora-Duran, Grace – Journal of Special Education Leadership, 2006

Minnema, Jane; Elliott, Judy; Barboza, Jane; Thurlow, Martha; VanGetson, Gretchen – Journal of Special Education Leadership, 2006
School districts, like many other societal groups, function as a system--a dynamically complex web of interaction in which each aspect of the district affects all other aspects.

Perez, Maria; Chambers, Jay G.; Knudson, Joel – Journal of Special Education Leadership, 2005
Although special education services for children age three through five have been part of the IDEA mandate for nearly 20 years, until recently relatively little attention has been given to the expenditures related to these programs and to what these funds buy in terms of the mix of general and special education classroom and related services.…

Increases in federal funds can theoretically support "program growth" by providing fiscal relief to states and districts facing rising special…
