Eleven papers focus on issues in inservice education for helping experienced teachers accommodate handicapped children in the regular school setting. Two introductory chapters ("Overview" and "The School Based Teacher Educator: Developing a Conceptual Framework" both by K. Howey and D. Corrigan) make a case for developing a sound conceptual basis for planning inservice teacher education. The personal dimension, i.e., how adults (teachers) learn and develop, is examined in three papers: "Adult Development and Leadership Training for Mainstream Education" (N. Sprinthall and L. Sprinthall); "Principles of Inservice Training for Implementing Mainstreaming in the Public Schools" (M. Haberman); and "A Hard Look at Curriculum Development: Implications for Teacher Development In Situ" (L. Berman). C. Case ("Schools as Social Systems: Applying Organizational and Development Concepts and Practices to Inservice Education'" and D. Johnson and R. Johnson ("The Classroom as a Social System: Classroom Learning, Structure, and Mainstreaming'" examine the organizational dimension. The teacher education dimension is explored in "Testing the Waters of School Based Teacher Education" (S. Yarger and S. Mertens) and "Staff Development Issues Relating to P.L. 94-142: A Local Education Agency Perspective" (E. Dillon-Peterson). The final section, on the future, is addressed by A. Anderson ("P.L. 94-142 and Suggested Ares of Competence for Teacher Educators") and D. Corrigan and K. Howey ("The Future: Creating the Conditions for Professional Practice"). (CL)
