3. Inclusive Education
You don't create an inclusive community that accepts and respects individual differences by perpetuating apartheid-based disabilities.
    William Arthur Ward, quoted in Christmas in Purgatory by Burton Blatt and Fred Kaplan, Human Policy Press,1974, p.99.
In 1954, the Federal Court in Brown v. The Board of Education stated that separate is not equal. Now, in 1993,* fewer than 7% of school-aged children with mental retardation are educated in a regular classroom. Forty-four states (including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) educated less than 9% of their students with developmental disabilities in regular classrooms. Surely this decade of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which outlaws segregation and discrimination based on disability, is the time to bring this national disgrace to an end. Just as with institutions, we can understand how separate educational settings began. People with developmental disabilities were virtually denied free public education from the beginning of this century until the 1970s. The first step back to "normality" and to "equal protection" was seen as developing "special schools" which were well equipped for dealing with the "special needs" of "special people." Now in the era of community and family living, inclusion, participation, and full citizenship, integration in schools makes sense.

One student's needs
By Tim Pugmire
Minnesota Public Radio
October 21, 2002 A recent national survey found most parents of special education students are satisfied with their schools. But the factors that drive that satisfaction are also what make mandated special education requirements costly. Educators must follow detailed plans to meet the unique needs of every student. Most of the plans require additional staff to get the job done. The result is a complex and expensive school day. Sam Graves is a fourth grader at Lake Harriet Community School in Minneapolis. You can view photographs from a typical school day.

The impact of a special education mandate
By Tim Pugmire
Minnesota Public Radio
October 21, 2002 In 1975, President Ford signed landmark legislation that guaranteed every disabled child equal access to an education. Congress will soon begin work to reauthorize the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This complex law has opened up learning opportunities for millions of children. But it's also consistently criticized as the classic unfunded mandate, one that puts a financial drain on school districts. Paula Goldberg is executive director of the PACER Center, Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights. The Bloomington, Minnesota-based organization has been helping parents of disabled children understand their rights under the federal special education law since 1978. Goldberg says the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) has been remarkably successful. (

One mold charters can't break
By Marjorie Coeyman
Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor NEW YORK The United Charter School is designed to serve 1,200 children in a low-income neighborhood in Baton Rouge, La. It is widely supported by area residents, who are almost entirely African-American. It's in compliance with the Louisiana state charter law. STAYING FOCUSED: First-graders keep pencils moving at Philadelphia's Harambee Institute for Science and Technology. Public charter schools like this one provide an alternative to regular public schools, but some are starting to face charges that they don't meet federal civil rights rules.
MELANIE STETSON FREEMAN - STAFF/FILE Yet the school's doors remain shut. The reason: United Charter runs afoul of a federal desegregation order requiring a racial balance in the parish's public schools. The US Department of Justice argues that the school will not attract enough white students. The case has created a situation some call absurd. "You won't find 10 people in this parish, black or white, who are in agreement with what's being done," says Jim Geiser, one of United's organizers. The United Charter imbroglio is just one facet of a larger problem of regulatory conflict. Charter schools are given great latitude on regulation in exchange for results. But the need to comply with often-costly federal civil rights requirements on racial balance and children with disabilities may prove to be a serious threat to the school-choice movement.

Education Issues Series an NEA Affiliate Special Education Inclusion Educators' Bulletin Board Resource pages on educational issues Professional support OnWEAC book store ... ONLINE SERVICES
This article was updated November 5, 2001 Inclusion remains a controversial concept in education because it relates to educational and social values, as well as to our sense of individual worth. Any discussion about inclusion should address several important questions:
  • Do we value all children equally? Is anyone more or less valuable? What do we mean by "inclusion?" Are there some children for whom "inclusion" is inappropriate?
There are advocates on both sides of the issue. James Kauffman of the University of Virginia views inclusion as a policy driven by an unrealistic expectation that money will be saved. Furthermore, he argues that trying to force all students into the inclusion mold is just as coercive and discriminatory as trying to force all students into the mold of a special education class or residential institution. At the other end of the spectrum are those who believe that all students belong in the regular education classroom, and that "good" teachers are those who can meet the needs of all the students, regardless of what those needs may be.
