ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Edgewood College
The research completed for this study focused on perceptions of selected regular education teachers from three school districts in northeastern Wisconsin on the topic of inclusion. The participants taught in regular education classrooms in grades pre-kindergarten through first grade in three different schools. Quantitative data were collected through a survey of the teachers who responded to eleven belief statements and two demographic questions. Through comprehensive data analyses, themes were identified, and the research questions were answered. This study contributed to the current and past research on inclusion in public schools by indentifying the positive and negative aspects of including special needs children in regular education classrooms. Finally, the information acquired notifies schools, teachers, and administrators of practices that are perceived as beneficial and detrimental to the inclusion process. Recommendations and summary information from this study intended to improve the inclusion of special needs students into the regular education pre-kindergarten through first grade classrooms.
