You will see the possibilities, and in that vision, you will see the power of the inclusive classroom. -Kylene Beers Drawing on the stories of learners, both with and without disabilities, as well as families and teachers, Patrick Schwarz shows you not only why many current special education frameworks don't work, but also how they damage children, often for life.
