Perceptions - attitudes of kindergarten and primary education teachers towards inclusive education of students with special educational needs or/ and disabilities (S.E.N./D) in ordinary school (Master thesis)

Ρήγα, Πηνελόπη

This particular master thesis attempts to investigate the attitudes - perceptions of general and special education teachers of primary education regarding the educational policy of inclusion of students with Special Educational Needs and / or Disabilities (SEN/D). Particular emphasis is given to teachers' self-efficacy beliefs and to the extent that they may influence or not their attitudes towards inclusion. In the survey participated 100 teachers from kindergartens and elementary schools in the prefectures of Ioannina, Magnisia and Aitoloakarnania. For the examination of the above issues, the quantitative method was applied by means of a questionnaire. The questionnaire consisted of two modules. The first module was consisted of the 14 statements for pre- school teachers and the 16 statements for the elementary teachers, from the Attitudes Towards Inclusive Education Scale (Wilczenski, 1992; 1995). Additionally, in the same module were included the 12 statements from the subscale “Perceived Self-Efficacy” from the "Self-efficacy, Perceptive School Collective Effectiveness, Job Satisfaction Scale" (Carpara, Barbaranelli, Steca, and Maloneet, 2003). Lastly, the second section of the questionnaire included demographic questions for the participants. The results of the survey showed, that both general and special educators have positive attitudes towards inclusive education of children with Special Education Needs (SEN). Additionally, their level of self-efficacy in their educational role was also high and as it is showed, it affects their attitudes towards inclusion.
