Kilgore, Karen; Griffin, Cynthia; Otis-Wilborn, Amy; Winn, Judy
Action in Teacher Education, v25 n1 p38-47 Spr 2003
Assessed problems confronting beginning special education teachers, noting whether contextual factors facilitated or impeded their efforts to solve these problems. Teacher surveys indicated that the most common problems related to insufficient curricular material, handling student behavior, and obstacles in collaboration with general educators. The most significant sources of support were from other special educators. Respondents felt segregated from the general education community, their general education peers, and administrative staff.
