Changing from segregation to inclusion - a report on a visit to the Forest Grove School District, Oregon, USA

Written Material

This report is written about a community which has successfully transformed its whole school system (an ongoing process and challenge). What the author say was an education system driven by a conscious belief in the value of all children. She identifies a number of possible reasons why such a fundamental change was able to occur - one of the most interesting being that the process of change involved every stakeholder in the school district including bus drivers and finance administrators. She ends the report with a list of myths exploded by this transformation - for example, that parents of children without disabilities will be against enrolment of children with, and that regular teachers cannot teach all students.
