Running head: AVOCACY FOR INCLUSION IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS Advocacy for Inclusion the Controversial Concept in Education Rochester College Abstract 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? Inclusion is a term which expresses commitment to educate each child, to the maximum extent appropriate, in the school and classroom he or she would otherwise attend. It involves bringing the support services to the child (rather than moving the child to the services) and requires only that the child will benefit from being in the class (rather than having to keep up with the other students).

Formative assessment or AFL is an inclusive practice that must involve all pupils, to provide them with information about how well they are doing and guide their efforts that follow after for future progression. Black and William’s (1998) review proved that formative assessment raises standards of achievement and equips children for life-long learning. Formative assessment has a multitude of ways that, as teachers, use to assess pupils and provide improvement explicitly where they can in the day to day teaching practise. A positive classroom environment should not be simply thought of by the externals physical factors of wall displays, layout, accessibility, ventilation, temperature or lighting. Yes, these are contributing factors, and a child must be able to feel safe and calm in the class or school environment.
What is meant by inclusion? Inclusion is an active not a passive process (Corbett Cited in Soan 2004:8) and no matter what background, religion, special need, race or disability the child should be include in the whole aspect of the curriculum. Having the environment and resources adapted to meet each individuals specific needs removing any barriers to learning and enabling every child to reach their potential. Inclusion is a big issue within mainstream education today and is very closely connected to the Special Educational Needs (SEN) practice already in place within schools. Many people believe that if a child has Special Educational Needs he/she should be educated in a special school.
