Teachers Prepare for Regular Class Placement of Handicapped Students. Briefly on...Regular Class Placement. No. 2.
The complex human and legal issues surrounding regular class placement of handicapped students have created some disagreement and confusion among teachers and teacher educators. The confusion is bound up with the issues of teacher biases, stigmatization of the handicapped, and the ability of untrained teachers to work properly with handicapped children. Whatever the issues, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act is now law, and the immediate need is for inservice education for teachers who have no training in special education. In addition, colleges and universities must be prepared to restructure the curriculum of teacher education programs to include special education. (DS)
