This study examined the impact of student variables (student socioeconomic status, race, attendance, and gender) and the school variable of placement in an inclusion setting on the academic achievement of general education students in grades 6, 7, and 8 in an urban school district. Academic achievement was defined as a general education student's performance in mathematics and language arts and literacy as measured by the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) annual state test. Analyses were conducted using multiple regression models. The sample was comprised of approximately 1200 students enrolled in grades 6, 7. and 8 in a New Jersey urban district's middle schools during the years 2010-2011. Results of this study indicated that placement in an inclusion classroom did have a statistically significant impact on the NJ ASK scores of non-disabled students; therefore, further research needs to be conducted in the area of inclusion in order to determine why inclusion is having a negative impact on the academic achievement of non-disabled students.
