ONLINE SERVICES This article was updated November 5, 2001 Inclusion remains a controversial concept in education because it relates to educational and social values, as well as to our sense of individual worth. Any discussion about inclusion should address several important questions: There are advocates on both sides of the issue. James Kauffman of the University of Virginia views inclusion as a policy driven by an unrealistic expectation that money will be saved. Furthermore, he argues that trying to force all students into the inclusion mold is just as coercive and discriminatory as trying to force all students into the mold of a special education class or residential institution. At the other end of the spectrum are those who believe that all students belong in the regular education classroom, and that "good" teachers are those who can meet the needs of all the students, regardless of what those needs may be.

Within a short time at Zeeland, the boy began to behave like the other children in the classroom. "Autistic children are excellent followers," she says. He benefited from "being able to watch how other children did it." His language developed as he interacted with children who spoke, and within a year he was toilet trained. After a while his full-time aide was let go because the teacher said she wasn't necessary. The story proved a basic point made by Zeeland Christian principal Bill VanDyk: "Kids learn better how to be kids from other kids than from adults or other mentally impaired children."

Appendix D: Bibliography Go to the Main report Appendix A Summary of 1997 Library Services to Special Needs Youth Survey Note: The narrative section of this survey is below. However, because of the formatting, the actual survey is available only as a Word document. A survey about library services to youth with special needs was distributed to all 381 public libraries in Wisconsin as part of the states 1997 Public Library Annual Report form, and 364 responses were received. The purpose of the survey was to obtain data about ongoing library services to youth with special needs that are funded locally, rather than with federal Library Services and Technology Act monies. When asked if the library offered outreach services to low-income youth and/or those with disabilities in the past year, over one-third (134) responded yes. Survey results showed that Wisconsin public libraries were more likely to provide services for low-income youth than for those with disabilities. Services for low-income youth were provided by 29% of public libraries and services for youth with disabilities were provided by 16% of public libraries. Age of Youth Served Generally speaking, public libraries offer their broadest range of programs and services for young children. The survey showed that services for children with special needs also tend to be directed to younger age groups, and decrease as children progress through school. For example, 95 public libraries said they provided services to low-income children from birth through preschool age. From a high of 95, the numbers of public libraries with services for low-income youth declined as the children age, from 73 libraries serving kindergarten through grade 3 to a low of 22 libraries serving grades 10-12. The same pattern is evident in services to youth with disabilities. Forty-three libraries said they offered services to youth from birth through preschool and youth in kindergarten through grade 3, while only 26 libraries provided services to youth in grades 10-12.

Endress made the comment after the City of Milwaukee announced that its charter schools do not bear the "burden" of providing special education services to students with disabilities. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has threatened to withhold funding for charter schools that do not provide such services, setting the stage for a showdown with the city. Several miles away in her north side apartment, Viola Beacham ponders her decision to return her son to the Milwaukee Public Schools. The private school for which she had received a state-funded voucher wasn't providing the services he needed for his speech/language and learning disabilities. Pat Patterson, meanwhile, makes unanswered calls to some of Milwaukee's private voucher schools seeking, so far in vain, for them to take her two severely disabled sons. "This is a public program," says this long-time mentor and advocate for African-American parents of students with disabilities. "Why shouldn't they have to take my children and provide the help they need?"
