Is Adventist Education for Everyone?

Description:
The author surveyed Adventists in the Lake Union Conference about the possibility of developing Adventist special-education programs for the mentally retarded. The only way for all Adventist children to be enrolled in Adventist schools is to develop special-education curricula for exceptional children. The aim of the survey was to gauge how Lake Union Conference members related special education to their own educational philosophy and whether they would support the development of such programs. An attitude scale was constructed. Aspects of special education programs discussed are networking, teacher training, cooperation with public schools, church activities, and printed resources.
