INCLUSION OF THE STUDENTS WITH DIFFERENT TYPES OF DISABILITIES IN PRIMARY SCHOOL
Over the last 50 years there has been a radical change in the education of children with disabilities. Inclusive education is a rationale concept which means wholeness and long transformation of institutional systems in society, especial in education.
The aim of this study was to examine the attitudes of Macedonian primary school teachers towards inclusive education; we analyzed the quality of the inclusive education of students with different types of disabilities in the mainstream schools in Skopje. 98 teachers from primary schools in the city of Skopje were inquired with the teacher inclusion attitudes questionnaire.
Data analysis indicates that in general, teachers have positive attitudes toward inclusion, but can be noticed that they have a divided opinion on the degree and type of disability.
We can conclude that there are still barriers facing students with disabilities and teaching stuff, and at the same time, the teaching staff does not have enough resources for work.
Key words: inclusion, attitudes, primary school teachers, disabilities
