The major problem was to investigate if there is a disparity in the views and reactions of regular education teachers and building administrators to ascertain the pros and cons of mainstreaming learning disabled, behavior disordered, and educable mentally retarded students in California public elementary schools. The purpose was to examine the perceptions and attitudes of these teachers and administrators to discover the effects of mainstreaming on the academic performance, social adjustment, and emotional behavior of these types of exceptionalities, the impact of mainstreaming on job performance of these teachers and administrators.
