School “Breaks Barriers” for Kids with Disabilities

School “Breaks Barriers” for Kids with Disabilities

When I first read this tweet I was really excited to see what barriers were being broken.  Seconds into the video I was extremely disappointed when I realized the focus on the clip was on “progressive” education, i.e. including students with various abilities in the same classroom. “A new frontier” in U.S. education they say.  Seriously??

How many classrooms and schools in the U.S still practice exclusionary education?  Is it so pervasive that inclusive education is a new frontier?  What about the “No Child Left Behind” policy.  Oh yeah.  That’s a bit of an oxy-moron.

Perhaps the title of this news clip should be “U.S Schools Struggle to Embrace Diversity”.
