Wendy Stroeve, a parent and teacher, reflects on the far-reaching impact of our school years, an impact which goes beyond educational goals. Stroeve argues passionately that parents of children with disabilities desire the same outcomes for their children as other parents and that these can only be achieved in typical surroundings. This means rejecting segregated settings and choosing an inclusive education as the Stroeve family have done for their son Alex. With inclusive education being based on good teaching practice and theories, Stroeve says resources should be allocated to children not settings. She maintains that parents of children with disabilities can be valuable allies to teachers in any fight to ensure that adequate resources are allocated to children with disabilities in inclusive settings.
