Abstract

The study examines teachers' attitudes toward inclusion in a private school setting. Seventeen general education classroom teachers in a private religious day school completed a 33-item questionnaire designed to assess their attitudes toward inclusion of students with disabilities in their classroom. Areas addressed in the survey include: non-teaching related concern, teaching related concerns, feelings of adequacy at implementing inclusion, how other students may feel toward inclusion, concerns of teaching and student learning, and professional development. Results revealed that overall teachers in this private school have a positive or realistic attitude toward inclusion of students with disabilities.
