  1. 1. NATIONAL FORUM OF APPLIED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH JOURNAL VOLUME 27, NUMBERS 1 & 2, 2014 FOREWORD T his issue begins our 27th year of publishing the NATIONAL FORUM OF APPLIED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH JOURNAL. The journal was founded in the interest of publishing the best original articles by educational researchers, practitioners, and theoreticians on a variety of viewpoints for persons interested in teacher education. Professors, theoreticians, educational researchers, practitioners, directors of research and service, deans, chairpersons, university administrators, curriculum and instruction specialists, school superintendents, principals, supervisors, classroom teachers, management consultants, facilitators, school board members, education policy persons, graduate students, community leaders, and many others represent the cosmopolitan readership of the NATIONAL FORUM OF APPLIED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH JOURNAL. A function of the NATIONAL FORUM OF APPLIED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH JOURNAL is to strengthen the established common bond among professors in higher education and practitioners in schools. The NATIONAL FORUM OF APPLIED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH JOURNAL seeks to help maintain a healthy mutual respect and awareness of the roles, the problems, and the progress of teacher education in all appropriate settings. NATIONAL FORUM JOURNALS are highly regarded both nationally and internationally. About the Issue I am honored to have Reginald Leon Green serve as guest editor of this issue of the NATIONAL FORUM OF APPLIED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH JOURNAL. Dr. Green is Professor of Educational Leadership at the University of Memphis. He has served at the teacher, principal, deputy superintendent, and superintendent levels of K-12 education and has been in higher education for 15 years. In the first article, Angela A. Brown and Reginald Leon Green identify reform strategies used by leaders of Blue Ribbon schools to successfully turnaround high-poverty, low-performing schools and to determine if the use of the strategies altered the instructional and institutional behaviors of teachers. In the second article, Blake Chism and Valerie Ooka Pang discuss Opportunity to Learn (OTL) standards and literature that support using OTL as a comprehensive assessment for transforming education by ensuring that all students are provided with equity in education. In the third article, Sandra Cooley Nichols and Adriane N. Sheffield emphasize the need for additional administrator training related to facilitating inclusive environments in PK-12 schools. In the fourth article, Laura Baylot Casey, Robert L. Williamson, Thomas Black, and Cort Casey develop and examine the results of an online survey to better understand teachers’ perceptions related to the teaching of written expression in an inclusive classroom environment. In the fifth and final article, Karen Ball and Reginald Leon Green assess the attitudes and perceptions of school leaders in a Southeastern United States public school district relative to inclusion of students with disabilities in the general education setting. To our readers, colleagues, and friends, thank you for your personal, professional, and especially for your continued financial support.
