The Attitudes of Primary School Teachers toward Inclusive Education in Rural and Urban China
Deng, Meng
Frontiers of Education in China, v3 n4 p473-492 Dec 2008
This study investigated the attitudes of primary school teachers from the selected rural and urban areas in China toward inclusive education. The results indicated that, (1) teachers' attitudes are composed of three dimensions: positive and negative effects of inclusion, and benefits of segregated special education; (2) most surveyed teachers demonstrated positive attitudes toward segregated special school education while supporting inclusion; (3) rural and urban teachers held significantly different attitudes toward inclusion, and urban teachers were more negative toward inclusion than rural ones; and (4) teachers' attitudes were not essentially influenced by resources, teaching years or relevant special education training.
