TEACHERS’ PERCEPTIONS OF INCLUSIVE EDUCATION ON THE BACKGROUNDS OF GREEK SCHOOLS
Languages of publication
The relevance of the problem under consideration is that the inclusion phenomenon in Greece, as an expression of every child’s right to educational equality, remains an important moral and political issue that needs to be addressed further. Greece, like most European countries, has followed the principles of the Salamanca Declaration. The feature of inclusive education is the willingness of teachers to accept students with special educational needs. Their attitudes and knowledge about inclusive education are important, as they are indicators of such willingness. The aim of this article is to study teachers’ perceptions of inclusive education on the background of Geek schools.
