Special Education Inclusion - Wisconsin Education Association Council. 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: Do we value all children equally?

What do we mean by “inclusion”? Are there some children for whom “inclusion” is inappropriate? 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. On the other side 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. Between the two extremes are large groups of educators and parents who are confused by the concept itself. Definitions In order to discuss the concept of inclusion, it is first necessary to have a common vocabulary.
