Inclusion and collaborative teaching

This project is about a survey (Appendix A) given to one public school with a population of768 students having 10 percent of the school's population identified with multiple disabilities. The survey was place in the mailboxes of 35 general education teachers, three special educators, and two administrators. This survey was conducted to find out what the teachers knew about collaborative teaching and inclusion, how their district handled the inclusion of students with disabilities & collaborative teaching. The survey also asked specific questions about the teachers knowing who was their program specialist, inclusion facilitator. This survey also covered specific laws that are well known in the special education world and are important for general educators and administrators to be aware of. The teachers from this survey have students that ranged in age from 5 to 12. Students were restricted to access to general education classrooms and their ability to leisure activities at the beginning of this study.
