They’re talking about my Wall Street Journal piece. Pretty lively.
BUT, I’m afraid that I’ve been misquoted…
I did not write that it’s time to debate mainstreaming. That was the Wall Street Journal’s headline. Not mine.
I was looking at special education far more broadly. I wrote that it’s time to bring all stakeholders to the table–regular and special education–to discuss how to educate all students. Mainsteaming is but one of the issues to explore. As many of these commenters say, mainstreaming is often an individualized situation. Context matters! I make no conclusions about it .
