Abstract

Inclusive education refers to the inclusion of special needs students in the regular education classroom. The present study focused on examining teachers' perception on attitudes and readiness toward inclusive education in Sarawak. A total of 120 teachers has participated in the study, consisting of 86 general education teachers and 34 special education teachers from six schools in Kota Samarahan, Bau and Kuching. Purposive sampling method was used to select the respondents. The respondents were given a set of questionnaire, which sought their responses regarding their perception on attitudes and readiness toward inclusive education. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics such as mean, standard deviation, frequency, and percentages. The main finding shows that in general the teachers' have a positive perception on attitudes towards inclusive education. The findings also show that special education teachers are ready toward inclusive education, however, general education teachers in the study were not ready toward inclusive education in schools. The result indicates that general education teachers' are not adequately trained to teach and instruct children with disabilities. In addition, they lack the knowledge and skills on inclusive education. Implications for promoting and improving teacher's perception on attitudes and readiness toward inclusive education are discussed.
