  •  Tansel Yazicioglu    


The number of students who attend an inclusive school in Turkey has been increasing. This increase in the number of students attending inclusive education makes the inclusive policies more significant and requires that schools of all types and levels should be ready for inclusive practices. This study aims at uncovering the views of school administrators and guidance teachers working at Anatolian high schools concerning the inclusive education. The data of the study were collected through focus group interviews. The study was carried out in Ankara during the school year of 2018–2019 with a sample of school administrators and guidance teachers working at different Anatolian high schools. The findings of the study indicate that there are serious problems in inclusive education practices at Anatolian high schools, the educational setting needed for students with special education needs cannot be provided and teachers do not have necessary experience in inclusive education.
