Invitation to Participate in Research Study June 10, 2020 Study Title: Examining the challenges and benefits of inclusion in urban secondary schools. Principal Investigator: Jeff Spaletta, Doctoral Candidate, University of New England Dear Potential Study Participant, I am inviting you to participate in a qualitative study discussing teachers’ attitudes about inclusion of students with disabilities in urban secondary schools. To participate in this study, you must: 1) be a secondary teacher in an urban high school and 2) currently teach in a Title 1 school. Your participation in this study is voluntary. Furthermore, your participation is anonymous. Study's Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine the attitudes of general-education teachers in urban, Title 1 high schools regarding the ability of those teachers to provide effective academic instruction to students with disabilities in full-inclusion programs in those schools. Research Questions: The following research questions will guide the study: 1. What are the attitudes of teachers working in urban, Title 1 secondary schools about full-inclusion programs that integrate students with disabilities into general education classrooms? 2. How do teachers describe their qualifications/preparation to provide appropriate instruction to students with disabilities in their mainstream classrooms? 3. How do teachers describe the influence of professional development, resources, and administrative support on their attitudes about the inclusion programs in their schools? Procedures: Teachers who meet the criteria will be selected based on their interest. An invitational post will be created by the researcher on teacher Facebook group platforms, LinkedIn and through email listserves. A secure link will be sent to those that confirm they meet the criteria and are interested in participating. Confidentiality: Confidentiality of all participants will be protected in compliance with the University of New England' research with human participants policies and procedures. Names of the participants will not be recorded, nor identified through the study. Compensation: No monetary or non-monetary compensation will be provided for your time or responses. Questions: If you have any questions or concerns regarding this study and your participation, please do not hesitate to contact me, the researcher, via email at [email protected]edu, or via phone at (303) 709-9783. You may also contact the researcher's advisor at the University of New England at [email protected] or by telephone at (207) 602-2010. Thank you for your valuable time and willingness to participate in this research study.
