Playing Hopscotch in Inclusive Education Reform: Examining Promises and Limitations of Policy and Practice in the US
Waitoller, Federico R.; Thorius, Kathleen King
Support for Learning, v30 n1 p23-41 Feb 2015
In this article, we provide commentary on the "state of play" of inclusive education in the United States. We focus on the promises and limitations of inter-related accountability- and market-driven policies and Response to Intervention (RTI) (Vaughn and Fuchs, 2003). We argue that these policies and practice have "hopscotched" their way through inclusive education reform, hopping over core tenets of the inclusive education movement. We propose policies and practices that have a strong commitment to inclusive education and that aim at debunking the myth of the normal child and school.
