Abstract [en]

From autumn 2008 Sweden has reinstalled the Special Education Needs teacher education. For future special education teachers and active teachers in the field, it is important to know the history and be aware of future visions to create a good role for the Special Education Needs teachers. This study examines attitudes towards special education and Special Education Needs teachers amongst school principals and classroom teachers at seven schools in Umeå municipality. School principals were interviewed, and a survey was handed out amongst the selected General Education teachers. From this it appears that school principals have a picture of special needs education and Special Education Needs teachers' work that corresponds well with the objectives of the school's governing documents. The study shows that General Education teachers' expectations of Special Education Needs teachers are to work with single students or small groups of students. The Special Education Needs teachers who are now examined can easily be trapped working with these small groups or single students and must ensure that they work according to the guidelines of governing documents. The study also shows that school principals support inclusive methods.

Abstract [sv]

Från och med hösten 2008 finns i Sverige åter en speciallärarutbildning med delvis nytt innehåll. För blivande speciallärare och aktiva på fältet är det viktigt att känna till historia och vara medveten om visioner för att skapa en så bra speciallärarroll som möjligt. Studien undersöker attityder till specialpedagogik och speciallärare hos rektorer och klasslärare vid sju skolor i Umeå kommun. Rektorer intervjuades och en enkät lämnades ut bland klasslärare. Utifrån detta visar det sig att rektorer har en bild av specialpedagogiken och speciallärarnas arbete som stämmer väl överrens med målen i skolans styrdokument. En slutsats som dras i studien är att klasslärarnas förväntningar på speciallärarna innehåller mer enskild undervisning och testning. En annan slutsats som dras är att de speciallärare som examineras riskerar att falla in i en roll där de arbetar med enskilda elever och små grupper och bör bemöda sig om att ha examensförordningens ord som ledstjärna för sin yrkesutövning. Studien visar också att ett inkluderande arbetssätt stöds av rektorerna.
