The Deception of Inclusion.
Chesley, Gary M.; Calaluce, Paul D., Jr.
Mental Retardation, v35 n6 p488-90 Dec 1997
Questions the assumptions of those advocating full inclusion for children with developmental disabilities. It suggests that such programs are not improving the cognitive development of students with disabilities, that individualized programming while fully mainstreamed is rarely feasible, that the general education curriculum doesn't focus on needed functional/vocational skills, and that parents may have unreasonable expectations.
