The inclusion of students with disabilities in neighborhood schools should be the norm, says educator Gordon Porter, director of Inclusive Education Initiatives. More training and support is needed for general-subject teachers working with students who have disabilities, and teacher assistants should spend more time as co-teachers in the classroom, he said. "We have to stop just talking about whether inclusion is a good idea and actually work on making it happen," Porter said.
