Inclusion Debate, writing homework help

Inclusion continues to be a very heated debate as to
whether it is beneficial for student learning; including those with and
without disabilities. There is much research that supports and also
opposes the practice of inclusion. Educational psychology provides us
with the ability to examine inclusion based on the theories of learning
and behavior and the continued research that aims to either validate or
abandon this notion of inclusion.

For this discussion, your instructor will divide you into two different
debate groups based on support and opposition on the topic of inclusion.
Read Chapter 4 to gain an understanding of how legislation mandates
that, whenever possible, children with exceptionalities be educated in
the mainstream education classroom with other students. You want to get a
deep understanding of LRE (Least Restrictive Environment). Review the
additional links to review the controversy over inclusion to assist in
formulating your defense with support from the literature:

Feel free to read additional texts about the topic and be sure to cite.

Based on your assigned position, formulate a defense statement that includes the following:

  1. What is inclusion and how does the legislative
    mandate of IDEIA (Individual with Disabilities Education Improvement
    Act, formerly known as IDEA – Individuals with Disabilities Education
    Act) support its efforts.
  2. Based on your research, provide at least three
    reasons for your position that is supported by the texts. You also want
    to provide solid examples to support each reason.
