Abstract (Summary)
ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was both to extend the current research base on inclusion and to further delineate the attitudes and perceptions of general and special educators regarding the outcomes of students with disabilities who participated in inclusive programs. In this era of accountability, a growing need has arisen for special education to intensify its emphasis upon student outcomes in relation to the general education classroom. Using a survey method with a follow-up confirmation interview, responses of 100 teachers were examined about their expectations of outcomes for students with different disability types and degrees included in the general education Special education teachers frequencies, descriptive statistics, and statistical analyses using an ANOVA procedure were used to determine the significance of the results. The findings were correlated to current research, trends, policy, and law.
