The purpose of this paper was to look at variables related to the school satisfaction of middle school students with learning disabilities. By definition, students with learning disabilities have a history of failure with school academics. According to the literature, they also have more negative outcomes in the areas of school completion, depression, and juvenile delinquency than do students in regular education. Since school satisfaction is an indicator of positive, subjective well-being in students, potential correlates of school satisfaction (locus of control, self-concept, and social support) were examined for predictability of school satisfaction.
