Singapore, like industrialized Western nations, faces similar challenges in the public school system in that increasingly, more students at risk, as well as those with special needs attend general education programs. This paper presents the concerns of primary school teachers working with students with disabilities in general education classrooms in Singapore. Based on the teachers' concerns, recommendations for the design of inclusive teacher education programs that would include special needs education in general teacher education programs are made.
