Teachers at an Illinois school who practice co-teaching say that all students benefit from classrooms that integrate special-education and traditional students. Teachers say they learn by working together, and students also learn from each other. "I think [special-education students] learn skills faster because they want to keep up with their peers," one teacher said. "This is the way to go -- their self-esteem is higher, they are not isolated or singled out."
