Cansiz, Mustafa; Cansiz, Nurcan
Online Submission, Erzincan University Journal of Education Faculty v20 n1 p167-183 2018
This study aims to examine preservice teachers' sentiments toward students with special needs, attitudes, and concerns about inclusive education in terms of a number of demographic variables. These demographics included major area, grade level, gender, interaction with disabled people, training for inclusive education, self-confidence for teaching in inclusive classrooms, and teaching experience in inclusive classrooms. Main data were collected only from first and second-year preservice teachers. The result indicated that although some findings matched those observed in earlier studies, others did not support the previous research. The possible reasons were discussed with reference to teacher education programs implemented in Turkey.
