Abstract
Attitude is a disposition to respond favorably or unfavorably to an object, person, institution, or event. Someone’s attitude could be inferred from her or his knowledge, affect, or conation toward objects, persons, institutions, or events. The aim of this study is to examine pre-service and in-service teachers’ attitudes toward inclusive education (IE) in regular preschool in Indonesia. There are 185 participants (100 pre-service teachers and 85 in-service teachers) in this study. Respondents were collected by accidental and purposive sampling. Participants were asked to complete a scale about attitudes toward IE and students with special education needs through self-report. Independent sample t-test, one-sample t-test, and descriptive methods were used to analyze data. The results showed that there are significant differences between the attitudes of pre-service and in-service teachers toward inclusive education. In-service teachers showed more positive attitudes toward IE and students with special education needs rather than pre-service teachers in cognitive aspects. Pre-service and in-service teachers who had experience in IE training showed more positive attitudes than teachers who had not.
