Issues in education
Educational Policy
"Inclusion assumes that
children with special needs are part of the regular stream and should be treated as such
... people with special needs should be viewed in the ways in which they are the same as other people rather than in the ways in which they are different."
schools inclusion means the mere physical presence or social inclusion in regular classrooms of students with disabilities while in
it means modification of content, instruction, and assessments to enable these students to engage in core academic experiences"
"Inclusive Schools"
The Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975
Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 1990
Primary Justification?
Main concepts:
Too simplistic to be improved
Inclusive practice varies
Extreme cases
privileged, victims, victimizers, unfortunate
Students requiring extraordinary attention
Large classes, inadequate support
Large range of abilities
"Uncritical infatuation with socialization"
How to make inclusion work beyond adequacy
"Inclusion is not likely to work if we insist on including the victimizers with the victims"
"In nearly every observation I conduct, I see other kids bored stiff; they could have been challenged and could excel or even come to love learning, except that the teacher is pressured to focus on the 'bubble kids' most likely to show substantial improvement on test scores. I also see far too many kids who think they can get by with insubstantial and careless work, and they are probably right."
