Inclusive education; Mainstreaming in education; Teachers--Attitudes


The purpose of this study is to determine the main concerns or difficulties of the "push in" model of inclusion for regular education teachers. The researcher's intention is to design a survey and compile regular education teachers’ concerns. The findings will be used to create discussions among colleagues at department meetings toward finding solutions to these concerns. The hypothesis is that the survey will illustrate that regular education teachers are showing apprehension and increased anxiety towards the "push in" model versus "pull out" model of instruction.
