A Survey of Elementary Teachers' Attitudes Towards Inclusion and Perceived Needs for Successful Implementation
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this research was to survey teachers' attitudes toward inclusionary practice. It has been suggested that teachers' attitudes toward inclusion are a tremendous factor in whether such a program will be a success or a failure. In addition, the survey addressed those resources and supports which were viewed as necessary components to an inclusionary classroom and which of those, if any, were available to respondents at the time. The results showed significant correlations to published research regarding the same topic. Teachers stated that they are not afforded the necessary training, materials or supports crucial to the success of inclusion. This lack of resources led to negative attitudes toward the program which led to few successful experiences.
