The Adoption of Inclusion Education in the United States

Inclusion education is a very important part of our educational system in the United States, and unless you have a family member who is gifted or has a disability, you probably don’t know much about them.

By definition, inclusion education is “the full acceptance of all students, including those with significant disabilities as well as extremely gifted children, in order to create a sense of belonging in a classroom community and to prepare students for productive lives as full members of society”.

Beginning in 1972 with the Mills vs Board of Education case, inclusion education has been a hot topic in the world of education and will continue to be well into the future.

The government has played a crucial role in establishing importance for providing those gifted or disabled with the same opportunities as those not. From the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, to the EHA of 1975, and finally the IDEA Act of present day, each has helped to gradually increase the opportunity for classroom integration for disabled students across America. Although students are more integrated in classrooms than ever in today’s world, there is still a great amount of work to be done.

The IDEA Act has been successful in raising the graduation 14% for disabled students, which is a great accomplishment but leaves a lot of work to do.
