UJ Research Project on Special Needs Education in Gauteng schools
This research is being conducted by the Department of Educational Psychology in the Faculty of Education. This questionnaire is designed for school principals and educators to complete regarding the education of learners with special needs in Gauteng schools. The form should take about 30 minutes to complete. The Masters in Educational Psychology students are acting as field workers to facilitate gathering data. Ethical clearance to conduct the research has been obtained from the Faculty of Education Research Ethics Committee (Clearance Number: 2017-023). This project is supported through an earmarked grant allocated as part of the Teaching and Learning Development Capacity Improvement Programme (TLDCIP), a partnership between the Department of Higher Education and Training and the European Union.
