Summary

The concerns of Kansas educators about the implementation of the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (P.L. 94-142) mandate are examined in this research report. Five different samples of public school educators, totaling 7,000 persons, were randomly selected and stratified according to district size. Each sample was sent either the Stages of Concerns Questionnaire (SoCQ) or the General Concerns Inventory (GCI). Returns were obtained from between 32 and 39 percent of the different samples. The hypothesis central to the study was that the developmental sequence of concerns is predictable and can be observed and measured. The longitudinal design provided a basis for (1) an annual examination of educators' concerns regarding P.L. 94-142, (2) assessment of the change in stages of concern over time, (3) a test of the developmental change theory, and (4) the design and development of a new instrument, the General Concerns Inventory. The results from 3 years of study (1978-80) indicated that Kansas educators are still at an early stage of adoption of the mandated policy and only modest developmental change has occurred in the interval, though that change is in the hypothesized direction. The developmental theory received continued support. (Author/MLF)
