Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

Recommendations for revision:

- The theory could be derived with more research and studies. Especially the very important chapter HLT. 

- Appendix A (participant demographics) is missing from the articel. 

- Detailed information on the method and implementation, e.g. when was the study conducted (year)? 

 - More precise statistical data (e.g. k kappa) on intercoder reliability (cross-code) should be added. 

- More detailed information on methodological procedures, like anonymization, and interview structure (e.g. guidelines) should be added. 

-  Results remain descriptive. A stronger integration into current research discourses would be desirable.

Reviewer 2 Report

Excellent focus on special education/educators to create a doable boundary for the study. Clearly grounded in HLT as the theoretical framework. Emergent themes were clearly identified. The associated explanation of each theme was a skillful blend of summary narrative along with key illustrative quotes. Specific recommendations for related future research were offered. I would add how many interview sessions were conducted with each participant (typically a phenomenology requires more than one interview session) and the approximate duration of each interview session. I also saw 'passion' in the overall study purpose, but I didn't see it as an emergent theme in the reporting of findings. If it didn't emerge, I would say so, in order to maintain tight alignment with the key concepts contained in the study purpose. Superbly written and highly informative about this timely topic!
