Lots of problems with inclusive education

An interim report says neither students with special needs nor their peers are being well-served by the inclusive education system.

The commission says there is widespread support for inclusive education, but the current model mostly just isn’t working. Schools lack a cohesive system for implementing inclusive education. There’s a lack of funding, teacher training and specialized staff.

The commission is working on a new policy that will ensure fairness and equity for all students and will hold public hearings in the fall.
