Special Education Research: Is Inclusion in Australian schools a Utopian concept?

Special Education Research: Is Inclusion in Australian schools a Utopian concept? | Australian Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

Inclusion has been touted as the philosophical way forward but is it a mere Utopian notion ignoring the fact that the the meeting of all need cannot take place without organizational and systemic 'revolutions' to the education system and paradigms in place in Australia. This article outlines the views of the Australian Special Education Principals' Association (ASSEPA) on inclusion (2007) and the impact full inclusion may have on Australian Government schools. It is thought provoking especially if you are sitting on the left and hold the view that "separate can never be equal". Is this a realist approach? Are students with significant special needs better placed within settings that are resourced with curriculum and staff that can meet their needs? Or is this a move by school principals, should this article represent them, that inclusion in its pure form places undue pressures on the systems which subsequently lead to the detriment of all students

About EENET - What is inclusive education?

About EENET - What is inclusive education? | Australian Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

There is no universally agreed understanding of inclusive education, as you will discover if you read any selection of documents from the resource collection.

EENET's definition of inclusive education was developed during a participatory seminar with education practitioners from around the world, held in Agra, India in 1998. This definition has since been used and adapted by a number of organisations and governments. You will, nevertheless, find various other definitions being used. No single definition is totally right or wrong. In fact it can sometimes be helpful to combine elements of the different definitions to best suit your own situation or country.
