Journal of the International Association of Special Education, v10 n1 p56-59 Spr 2009
This paper reports the results of an investigation of satisfaction of 135 resource room teachers and 190 mothers of children served in resource room programs in Jordan. Information from teachers was gathered using questionnaires, semi-structured interviews, and classroom visits. Information from parents was gathered using a brief questionnaire. Teachers reported a moderate level of satisfaction with working conditions in resource rooms. They were most satisfied with their job as resource room teachers and relationships with colleagues. They were most dissatisfied with salary and fringe benefits and family involvement in educational programs. Mothers were highly satisfied with resource rooms. They were most satisfied with the improvement in the academic performance of their children in the resource room and least satisfied with the school's communication with them. (Contains 2 tables.)
