Inclusive Education: A Global Agenda
S. J. Pijl, Cor J. W. Meijer, Seamus Hegarty
Psychology Press, 1997 - Education - 182 pages
The way in which special education is conceived varies around the world, and pratice varies accordingly. One of the current debates concerns the concepts of mainstreaming, integration and inclusion - and whether these are in fact different concepts, or simply differnt terminology.
This book is based on the assumption that inclusive education is a necessary part of providing high quality education for all. Using international examples, it clarifies the rationale for inclusion and demonstrates how it can be put into practice.
