Extractions: VOL. 16 #1 March 1996 EDUCATING RAFAEL. The 1-17-96 EDUCATION WEEK contains this article on DS/INCLUSION, plus OBERTI AND THE LAW (the case is one of 1/2 dozen on inclusion). The case indicates schools have the burden to prove why a student should not be included in a regular classroom. The Oberti's first took the school to court five years earlier, but lost. The Appeals judge in '92 said: "Inclusion is a right, not a privilege for a select few." The author (Lynn Schnaiberg) says the two sides to the case are speaking in different languages: the school saw Rafael as half-empty, but his parents saw him as half-full. In concluding OBERTI AND THE LAW Schnaiberg says: "Regardless of where educators stand philosophically on inclusion, many disability-rights advocates have made the link between inclusion and racial desegregation. And they warn that if schools don't move fast enough to better integrate their disabled children, the courts may step in to do the job for them." See Page 776 of the 21/28 December '95 NATURE for this report by the Harvard Department of Neurology (Bruce Yanker, Enders 260, 300 Longwood Ave., Boston, MA 02115). In the final paragraph the authors state that "increased generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) may contribute to abnormal brain developmental and mental retardation in DS." Their final sentence says, "if there is in vivo confirmation then the neuro protective effects of antioxidants may provide an important therapeutic approach to mental retardation and the prevention of Alzheimer's disease in DS individuals."

Vandehey last month at Stevensville High School, where special education students are mainstreamed into regular education classrooms. Stephens, who has Down syndrome, spent eight years in a resource room for special-needs students, but didn't learn to count until he joined regular math classes with his peers. Photo by TOM BAUER /Missoulian By JANE RIDER of the Missoulian Debate continues over how to provide special education 27 years after passage of landmark legislation A generation ago, the federal government made a promise and the doors of schoolhouses across the country opened for the first time to children with disabilities. What greeted those children was far from ideal during those early years. "I do remember those first jobs, literally teaching in the stairwells or in a room in the basement," said Mary Rector, a Sentinel High School special education teacher who earned her degree back East in 1976, a year after the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act was enacted. Virginia Deland, a Missoula mother whose daughter was 7 years old when schools began accepting students here, recalls those early days, as well.

One of the major issues addressed by the legislation is the quality of teachers for children with special needs. IDEA 97 requires students receiving special education services to be educated with their non-disabled peers to the maximum extent practicable. As a result, according to a 2001 report from the Study of Personnel Needs in Special Education, 75% of students receiving special education services spend 40% or more of their day in general education classrooms. Consequently, 96% of general education teachers currently teach, or have in the past taught, children with special needs. How have states responded to the challenge to prepare general education teachers to meet the needs of students with special needs? According to ECS Teacher Preparation Policy Database (http://www.tqsource.org/prep/policy/), 46 states and the District of Columbia currently have statutes or regulations requiring teacher education programs to provide some instruction on teaching children with special needs to individuals seeking initial training in elementary or secondary education. The amount and content of this instruction, however, varies dramatically.
