Marchesi, Alvaro; Martin, Elena; Echeita, Gerardo; Perez, Eva M.
European Journal of Special Needs Education, v20 n4 p357-374 Nov 2005
The study collected and contrasted the opinions of different sectors of the educational community about the functioning and integration of students with special educational needs. In order to do this, a broad questionnaire was sent to teachers of diverse educational stages, to counsellors, parents and to students, both with and without special educational needs. The objective was to examine the respondents' approach to mainstream integration and their opinions about how their school operated. At the same time, the study examined their opinion concerning the work of the teachers, the learning and social development of the students, the relationships with families and the input of the education authorities. Barriers which create difficulties for educational integration were assessed. (Contains 15 tables)
