What Do Students Think about Inclusion?
Miller, Maury
Phi Delta Kappan, v89 n5 p389-391 Jan 2008
The practice of inclusion--teaching students with disabilities in the context of regular education classrooms--is controversial among educators themselves. But has anyone ever bothered to ask students how they feel about it? Learning to be a teacher means learning about students, understanding their preferences, and considering their points of view. The best way to get these student views is to go to the students themselves. In this article, the author describes how he had assigned his class of prospective teachers to interview students and discover their views with regard to the inclusion of students with exceptionalities in their own classrooms. (Contains 2 endnotes.)
