A Principal's Dilemma: Full Inclusion or Student's Best Interests?
Oluwole, Joseph O.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v12 n1 p12-25 2009
This case highlights one principal's struggle to reconcile his philosophy of full inclusion with the best interests of a student with serious emotional disturbance. It raises a number of issues that bring to light challenges posed by a system of full inclusion. It also provides an opportunity for educational leadership students and administrators to critically confront and appreciate the ethical and legal dilemmas presented in the provision of special education services to students with serious disabilities.
