A worldwide revolution is occurring in education of learners experiencing disabilities. The Special Education model is being replaced by Inclusive Education, education all learners together in the regular classrooms of community schools. Inclusive Education is not simply a new way to educate students who differ in ability, hearing, vision, behaviour, or body. It is based in sweeping change of how we regard people experiencing disability and their right to full participation in society. As with all change, Inclusive Education is not welcomed by everyone. Some governments, educational administrators, teachers, and parents prefer the Special Education approach, which regards some learners experiencing disability as so different that they cannot learn in the company of their typical peers. Under this view, they must be separated for their own good. However, increasing numbers of people in every nation see and argue for the social justice of bringing all learners together in school. They understand that difference is a reason to be included. This book presents snapshots of the struggle of education change as seven nations respond to this new human rights understanding of how education and disability should intersect. In various ways and at different levels, each is experiencing the tension and excitement, which always accompany change

Resistance and acceptance : educator attitudes to inclusion of students with disabilities by Gary Bunch( Book )

This report presents findings of a Canadian national study of 1,492 regular classroom teachers, administrators, resource teachers, special class teachers, and university students on the inclusion of students with disabilities into general education classrooms. Three data sources were used in the research: an Educator Opinion Questionnaire, voluntary spontaneous written comments from the last page of the questionnaire, and individual, in-depth interviews. Results indicate that the educators' attitudes toward inclusion divided into two major areas. The first related to strong reservations about work load and the effect of inclusion on regular class teachers, adequacy of preservice and inservice professional development, and administrator support for teachers who were including special education students in their classrooms. The second area of concern centered on positive beliefs regarding inclusion and teacher ability. Generally, positive attitudes were held regarding professional ability to accept primary responsibility for included students, the ability of regular class teachers and resource teachers to work collaboratively, and the effect of inclusion on both regular and included students across social and academic domains, particularly the social. Implications of the findings are discussed, including the need for greater collaboration among government agencies, schools, and families. Appendices include the interview questions and a discussion of results. (Contains 63 references.) (CR)
