Placement of Handicapped Children by Canadian Mainstream Administrators and Teachers: A Rucker-Gable Survey.
Morris, Pauline S.; McCauley, Robert W.
Measured were attitudes toward handicapped children of 387 regular classroom teachers, and compared was knowledge of program placements for handicapped children held by 29 regular school administrative personnel in Canada and 35 special education "experts" from the U.S. The administrators and teachers completed The Rucker-Gable Educational Programming Scale (RGEPS) which provides knowledge and attitude scores based on a comparison with the 35 RGEPS "experts". Results indicated that the elementary level teachers were more positive in attitude than the RGEPS experts or secondary teachers. In addition, the school administrators selected placement options closer to the regular class than did the expert group. Results had implications for the mainstreaming of handicapped children in Canada. (CL)
