Overview
This book is a must-read for administrators, teachers, professors, policy-makers, parents, and school district leaders across the country. Interventions can take several forms, but successful interventions come from creating a strategic plan based on observations with fidelity. To be successful, you must have a successful leader that is humble enough to follow their subordinates when needed. This book breaks down the characteristics of transformational leaders; strategies for successful inclusion, then switches gears to examine factors influencing teachers’ attitudes toward including students with behavior intervention plans in inclusion classrooms with authentic research results from a causal-comparative study. The research found that majority of general and special education teachers believe that inclusion provides advantages for students with behavior intervention plans when there is effective collaboration. This book uncovered factors influencing teachers’ attitudes towards inclusion relating to students with Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs). BIPs can help prevent behavior problems by addressing their cause. Descriptors: educational leadership, Dr. Thurman Tucker, inclusion, general education, special education, BIPs.
