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

Not enough : summary report and recommendations of a national consultation into strengthening Canadian research of inclusive education by Gary Owen Bunch( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2001-02, a national consultation was held on inclusive education in Canada, and more specifically on interest in strengthening Canadian research examining inclusive educational reform. This document presents summary findings of that consultation process. The introduction explains the benefits of inclusive education (where learners with disabilities attend regular classrooms and have the instructional & other supports they need to participate) and compares the inclusive education model to the more widely used special education model. The lack of research into inclusive education, in contrast to the abundant research on special education, is also noted. The main section sets out & discusses ten recommendations arising from the consultation that cover such matters as research funding, priority areas of research, collaboration in research, and scholarships
