Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Since the passage of Public Law 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975, principals are being required to assume increasingly greater responsibilities for the education of handicapped children within their schools. 1 As the recognized administrative and instructional leader of the school, it is the principal who is the primary school person involved in promoting adequate programs for the handicapped child. The school principal is considered to be the person who determines the attitudes and sets the tempo for the total educational program within the building. The principal is the educator who encourages flexibility, innovation, and the uses of appropriate techniques to improve all educational services, particularly all those offered handicapped children.
