Exceptional Students in Regular Classes: Interviews with 43 North Dakota Elementary Teachers.
Presented are results of interviews conducted with 43 elementary teachers from nine schools having participated in the Upper Midwest Small Schools Project (UMSSP), a program of teacher workshops and diagnostic clinics on exceptionality in the regular classroom. A summary of teachers' responses regarding UMSSP and special students is presented along with statements supporting, neutral to, or not supporting the concept of integration. Discussed are three major recommendations concerning more course work relating to exceptional children, more direct contact and experience with the various systems for delivering educational services to exceptional children, and more contact with exceptional children. Appendixes include a copy of the interview questionnaire, letters sent to administrators of UMSSP schools, teacher statements regarding mainstreaming, teacher responses about problems with mildly retarded students in the regular class, and teachers' recommendations for teacher education.
