The Effective Fit of Regular and Special Education Competencies in the Preparation of Regular Classroom Teachers.
Schenkat, Randolph J.
The problems encountered in restructuring teacher education programs to train regular teachers in special education skills to meet the needs of mainstreamed students are examined. It is concluded that there is an overlap in content in education courses and that many of the subjects already required, such as psychology, prepare teachers to cope with the special child. If such subjects are stressed there is little need for radical curriculum changes. (JD)
