ABSTRACT
The article focuses on two surveys which were conducted in Latvia to obtain the perceptions of disabled students and their families to including students with disabilities in general education classes, and to determine the perceptions of general physical educators' perceptions of including students with physical disabilities in general physical education classes. The surveys revealed that there was frustration and dissatisfaction with both students and teachers with the manner in which students with disabilities were included in general physical education classes, and that more research needed to be done before inclusion could be properly managed.
