Standards and Inclusion: Can We Have Both? addresses the issue of inclusion for educators in both pre-service and in-service training. Dorothy Lipsky and Alan Gartner visit schools across the country and observe first-hand how the learning needs of all students are being successfully met in general educational environments.
They discuss how special education is a service, not a location; how the inclusion of students is not determined solely by where they are placed, but by their full and complete access to the same curriculum as the general education population.
Topics covered: the Consequences of Higher Standards; the Seven factors of Successful Inclusion; the Reauthorization of I.D.E.A; and the Restructuring of Our Schools.
