This article provides ten moral arguments in support of inclusive education. These include the longer-term benefits of an inclusive society, as well as the benefits to students with and without disability, and their teachers. It emphasises that inclusion is becoming a world-wide trend, enforced by research and law, and it is illogical to argue that segregated schooling leads to inclusive living later in life. Partial inclusion and 'pull out programs' are not as beneficial as full inclusion, as they send the message 'that students with disability only partly belong in the classroom and community'.
