Exploring the Perceptions of Students Classified as Emotional
Fuller, Andrea M.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Union Institute and University
Students classified as Emotional/Behavioral Disability (EBD) face tremendous challenges in their lives on a daily basis. Is an alternative school with self-contained classes the best option for educating EBD students? How do the students feel about this educational environment? Do they perceive it as the solution to their problems, or do they see themselves as "throw-away" kids being segregated in a school that is one step away from jail? Through the use of qualitative phenomenological interviewing, twelve students volunteered to discuss this dilemma. Their insightful and thought-provoking responses to the research questions give us a look into the essence of their personal experiences, as only they can describe.
