Minimum Conflict Mainstreaming.
Awen, Ed; And Others
Computer technology is discussed as a tool for facilitating the implementation of the mainstreaming process. Minimum conflict mainstreaming/merging (MCM) is defined as an approach which utilizes computer technology to circumvent such structural obstacles to mainstreaming as transportation scheduling, screening and assignment of students, testing, and grading. It is noted that MCM has the advantages of reducing clerical loads, preventing waste in financial and educational areas, and freeing human and mechanical resources for use in the teaching/learning process. Some impediments to mainstreaming (such as negative attitudes, detrimental effects of labeling, and lack of teacher support systems) are reviewed and the use of MCM to neutralize impediments is described.
