Inclusive Education Policy Implementation: Implications for Teacher Workforce Development in Trinidad and Tobago
Johnstone, Christopher J.
International Journal of Special Education, v25 n3 p33-42 2010
This manuscript examines results from a national survey of teachers in Trinidad and Tobago. Data from this study were derived from a national survey conducted by the consulting firm Miske Witt and Associates for the Trinidad and Tobago Ministry of Education. The aim of the survey was to solicit broad-based perspectives on teachers' knowledge and attitudes about inclusive education. Items for the survey were constructed on consultation from Ministry requests for information about the knowledge, attitudes, and resources available to teachers--specifically related to students with disabilities. Through descriptive and regression analyses, data provide insights into teacher preparation and professional development priorities. Among them, further training for general education teachers on how to help students with disabilities succeed in mainstream environments. (Contains 5 tables.)
