Preservice and Early Career Teachers' Attitudes toward Inclusion, Instructional Accommodations, and Fairness: Three Profiles
The current study examined the attitudes of beginning general education teachers with respect to teaching in inclusion classrooms. Sixty graduate students, taking a survey at the conclusion of a special education course, completed Q-sorts constructed to evaluate responses regarding attitude toward (a) inclusion, (b) instructional accommodations, and (c) fairness, along two dimensions: positive/negative and anxious/confident. A three-factor solution resulted in profiles of three groups of teachers: keen, but anxious, beginners; positive doers; and resisters.
