ABSTRACT

Due to the free primary education that was implemented in 2002 in Kenya, Most pupils with

mentally retardation were admitted to the regular schools this prompted the researcher to

investigate teacher's attitudes towards mentally retarded learners.

The study was carried in Emulole Base Emasatsi Division, Khwisero District, Kenya for eight

months of December to July 2010. The study obtained information from teachers both male

and female in the five sampled schools the sampling was done randomly. Names of schools

were written on a piece of paper and five schools picked randomly.

The researcher used questionnaires that were developed from the research objectives,

pretesting with a few hand to different teachers four from each primary school who were also

picked randomly.

The respondents were familiar with the researcher and all the questions were filled and

collected without any, difficult as most of the schools were easily accessible.

From the study most of the teachers are well educated to diploma and degree levels and a few

are still pl certificate holders. This could be the reason why some teachers have negative attitude towards including mentally retarded m the ordinary class.
