This study investigated the relationship between demographic variables of secondary Indiana career and technical education (CTE) instructors and program expectations for students with and without disabilities participating in CTE. Respondents' gender, age, level of education, years in current position, years in education, and training in special needs (i.e., university coursework, in-service training) are reported. A survey research design using student case studies and non-random survey methods were used to explore instructors' perceptions of students' social integration, academic and occupational skill attainment, and postsecondary occupational employability. Significant differences were found regarding students' social fit, academic attainment, occupational skills competencies, and employment potential in the occupational area by respondents' demographic variables. Teacher training and future research efforts are discussed. (Contains 8 tables.)
