Inclusion: A Catalyst for School Reform
Hyatt, Keith J.; DaSilva Iddings, Ana Christina; Ober, Scott
TEACHING Exceptional Children Plus, v1 n3 Article 2 Jan 2005
This article tells the story of one elementary school faculty who responded to the call for accountability by adopting an inclusive view and implementing educational practices where all students were welcomed and considered valuable, contributing members of the school community. The inclusion of students with disabilities in the general education setting did not negatively impact the accountability measures for the school; in fact, the school received a U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon Award. This article briefly describes the process and challenges faced by the faculty, parents, and students as the school began a restructuring plan focused on the inclusion of all students in a supportive school setting.
