Because no study of this nature has been made recently to determine the effectiveness of special education services in the Negro schools of Texas, it was felt that an investigation of this nature might reveal valuable information to superintendents of schools, principals, teachers and college officials in the state of Texas by helping them to (1) emphasize the need for more intensive studies of this type and (2) create interest among all Negro schools in organizing or improving special education services.

The purpose of the study is to survey the nature, organization and extent of special education services for the educable and trainable mentally retarded in the Negro schools in the State of Texas and to determine the attitude of school administrators toward special education services in the Negro schools. It also seeks to identify the need for special education facilities for the educable and trainable mentally retarded in those Negro schools in Texas where they do not exist.
