Regular Education and Special Education: Toward Improving High School Inclusion With recent special education law, more special needs students are being educated in the general education classroom than ever before. No Child Left Behind is requiring educators to ensure that special needs students are achieving at the same level as their peers. General educators need training, support and resources in order to be more effective in their classrooms. This means special educators and administrators need to be cognizant of their needs and work to provide general educators the support they need to be successful with special needs students in the general education classroom. In an effort to provide data to administrators for improving inclusionary practices within the district, this study looks at the perceived needs of high school general educators in Montrose County School District in Colorado.
