A Survey of the Attitudes of Secondary Vocational Cluster Teachers Toward the Mainstreaming of Handicapped Learners. (A Research Project in Vocational Education in the Portland Public Schools).
Rumble, Richard R.
One-hundred and twenty vocational cluster teachers completed a questionnaire on their attitudes toward the integration of handicapped students into vocational programs. Results were analyzed in terms of contact and willingness to work with the handicapped, teacher attitudes, accommodation of the handicapped, needed assistance, and practicality of mainstreaming. Among major findings were a clear relationship between contact with the handicapped and teacher confort; concern about personal liability in working with the handicapped; and indications of need for extra support personnel, training in instructional methods, and curriculum development.
