Responses of Teachers and Non-Teachers Regarding Placement of Exceptional Children. Final Report.
Phelps, William R.
Evaluated were opinions of 10 teachers and 10 nonteachers on educational placement of children with such handicaps as orthopedic, visual, and speech problems. Analysis of questionnaires yielded the following information: the major differences centered on placement for the emotionally disturbed, hearing impaired, orthopedically handicapped, and visually impaired child; fewer differences existed regarding the cerebral palsied and stuttering, slow learning, and speech impaired child; and more teachers than nonteachers expressed the need for special classes and schools while more nonteachers favored maintaining the child in the regular class.
