All children with disabilities are to be educated to
the "maximum extent" with children who do not have disabilities.

~ Federal Law I.D.E.A. Sec. 612.5 (A) ~

"Inclusion is a right, not a special privilege for a select few".
~ Federal Court - Oberti v. Board of Education ~

"Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal"
~ Supreme Court - Brown v. Board of Education ~

Schools who let one criterion, such as a specific disability, automatically
determine the placement are likely to be held in violation of federal law.

~ Supreme Court - Board of Education v. Rowley ~
