Summary

Teachers and students still operate within damaging labels, and this is especially true for students with Special Needs and those who teach them. Inclusion, or combining Special and General Ed populations as well as ELL students, effectively combats this issue. Yet as districts trend towards inclusion, most certification programs encourage pre-service teachers to choose either Special or General Ed tracks, producing teachers only halfway equipped for the diversity of their classrooms. Here, the program director of the only fully inclusive school in Austin and professors from NYU will question and help develop pathways for expecting and implementing inclusion, from preschool to pre-service.
