Inclusion: the new special education
The following research was conducted among teachers in a diverse, mid-sized community. The purpose of this research was to see how inclusion of special education students into the general education class fits into education today. Teachers in elementary, middle, and high school levels and the areas of general, special, and gifted and talented were surveyed or interviewed. Additional research helped lead to information about inclusion today in our schools. Additional topics include special education service, inclusion fears, parent concerns, challenges of inclusion, barriers to inclusion, teacher preparedness, NCLB and AYP, RTI, neverstreaming, inclusion vs. pull-out, and professional learning communities. Inclusion is the way of the future.
