Abstract

Teachers are faced with obstacles in developing curricula, fulfilling a variety of student requirements, and working with Special requirements Students (SEN) in conventional schools when implementing inclusive education. The issues include inadequate parental support, inadequate facilities, teacher preparedness and competency, and unequal teacher-student ratios. Through teacher self-efficacy, this study seeks to assess how teacher involvement affects teachers' attitudes in inclusive primary schools in Padang City. The Engaged Teachers Scale for Special Educational Needs Teachers (ETS), Teacher Efficacy for Inclusive Practice (TEIP), and Multidimensional Attitudes towards Inclusive Educational Scale-Indonesian Version (MATIES-IV) are some of the research instruments. The approach combines path analysis and quantitative research with IBM SPSS and Rstudio. The study's findings highlight the function of teacher self-efficacy in inclusive primary schools as a complete mediator between attitudes and teacher engagement. It is anticipated that this study will offer an empirical contribution on the function of educators in maximizing the adoption of inclusive education in Padang City
