National Center on Schoolwide Inclusive School Reform: The SWIFT Center
The SWIFT Center will demonstrate how schools can be transformed to provide inclusive educational opportunities for all students. The SWIFT Center will address the key American goal of equal educational opportunity by assisting schools to reorganize in ways that enable them to fully deliver on inclusive, general education for all students--including students with disabilities, students from low-income families, English language learners and students taught the regular grade-level academic curriculum. SWIFT builds on a long record of research documenting the positive benefits of inclusive approaches to teaching and learning for students with varying aptitudes, prior achievement and advantages or disadvantages. SWIFT offers selected states, districts, and schools a comprehensive set of services and assistance to implement, evaluate and scale up inclusive education in schools and classrooms. Research associated with participating SWIFT schools will be broadly communicated and discussed with education decision-makers.
