History of Special Education in MN's Schools
This project provided documentation of the oral histories of former local directors of Special Education who were involved in implementing changes in policy and services for children with disabilities and their families in Minnesota during the 1950's to the 2000's. Seven interviews and a three-person panel discussion were conducted, recorded and transcribed. The interviews and transcriptions are available at the Minnesota Administrators of Special Education (MASE) office and the Minnesota History Center.
