Extractions: VOL. 16 #1 March 1996 EDUCATING RAFAEL. The 1-17-96 EDUCATION WEEK contains this article on DS/INCLUSION, plus OBERTI AND THE LAW (the case is one of 1/2 dozen on inclusion). The case indicates schools have the burden to prove why a student should not be included in a regular classroom. The Oberti's first took the school to court five years earlier, but lost. The Appeals judge in '92 said: "Inclusion is a right, not a privilege for a select few." The author (Lynn Schnaiberg) says the two sides to the case are speaking in different languages: the school saw Rafael as half-empty, but his parents saw him as half-full. In concluding OBERTI AND THE LAW Schnaiberg says: "Regardless of where educators stand philosophically on inclusion, many disability-rights advocates have made the link between inclusion and racial desegregation. And they warn that if schools don't move fast enough to better integrate their disabled children, the courts may step in to do the job for them." See Page 776 of the 21/28 December '95 NATURE for this report by the Harvard Department of Neurology (Bruce Yanker, Enders 260, 300 Longwood Ave., Boston, MA 02115). In the final paragraph the authors state that "increased generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) may contribute to abnormal brain developmental and mental retardation in DS." Their final sentence says, "if there is in vivo confirmation then the neuro protective effects of antioxidants may provide an important therapeutic approach to mental retardation and the prevention of Alzheimer's disease in DS individuals."
