Abstract
The government has made an effort to change its policy of inclusive education for children with special needs (ABK) by involving these children in a regular class to study together with other children. However, a new problem has arisen. Teachers in regular schools are not educated and prepared specifically for managing a class for ABK. In response to this situation, PGSD (elementary school teacher education) department of UMM offers a teacher education to support the government’s program by producing graduates who are competent to manage classes for ABK in the inclusion school. To achieve this, the curriculum is designed to equip students with the following competencies. (1) Understanding who ABK is, (2) Understanding how ABK learns, and (3) Having the competence to manage classes for ABK. Data were collected using questionnaires, curriculum content analysis, interviews, and documentation, and analyzed using percentage. A qualitative analysis was to analyze the interviews results and curriculum analysis. There were 300 students of the 6th semester involved in this research. Findings showed that some materials were not mastered by most students, so the expected learning outcomes might not have been achieved. Therefore, revisions to the syllabus and materials, especially those related to ABK teaching and learning, were required.
