It’s about time! No pun intended.
Thank you, Education Week, for this long overdue front page–top story. We need to study how inclusion affects classrooms–teachers and students.
While the story focused on an international study looking at general educators’ time on task and the effect of behavior issues in classrooms, this is but a good first step. We need many more studies need to look at all other aspects of this vital question: How inclusion affects general education–teachers and students (and even parent perception).
As many of you, my loyal readers, know, I’ve focused on this issue for years. See my 2013 Wall Street Journal op-ed on Mainstreaming; see my 2017 book, Special Education 2.0 (in the Store on this website as well as on Amazon).
So, a great first step. Thank you, Education Week, for its front page top story placement!
