The education policy in Croatia is inclusive and therefore promotes inclusive values in the community. Teachers’ beliefs about and attitudes towards inclusive education play a key role in the successful education of students with disabilities in regular classes. This paper is based on the hypothesis that teachers – especially younger and less-experienced teachers, as well as elementary school teachers – believe that inclusive education contributes equally to the development of students with disabilities and to the development of typical students..
The study included 274 teachers from two counties in the Republic of Croatia. Questionnaire on Teachers’ Opinions about the Inclusion of Children with Moderate to Severe Special Needs in General Education Settings (Linn and Coelho da Silva, 2014) was used. By significant reduction of the variables, a Scale of Teacher Beliefs about Inclusive Values with good metric characteristics was obtained. It included two factors: (1) Inclusive education contributes to the development of typical students and (2) Inclusive education contributes to the development of students with disabilities.
