Meeting the needs of students with disabilities in general education classrooms requires collaboration between general and special education teachers. In this article, the challenges of co-teaching at the secondary level are explored through the voices of general and special education teachers who co-taught in inclusive classrooms at a large suburban high school in the southwestern United States. Semi-structured interviews were conducted and analyzed for common themes and these themes were then checked with the teachers. Critical issues for teachers clustered around three major areas: the nature of collaboration, roles and responsibilities, and outcomes. These themes are discussed and examined for the implications they hold for other schools implementing co-teaching.
