A study investigated the factors influencing 193 Australian parents in choosing either an integrated setting or a special school for their children with disabilities. Mainstream parents gave high rating to normalization and academic aspects, while special-school parents emphasized special programs, teacher-student ratios, and the child's self-esteem. (Author/CR)
