Limited Capacity seats available

In this era of high stakes testing and teacher accountability, students with disabilities requiring more or unique supports can be constructed as liabilities, potential hazards to the success of other students and teachers. This interactive presentation will explore the state of inclusive education and how current "value-added" and "evidenced-based" definitions of education and assessment position some students as outside the ranks of inclusive classroom membership. We will explore ways to utilize principles of Disability Studies in Education to inform inclusive reform and share efforts to maintain and increase a commitment to and enactment of inclusion in their local school communities. OBJECTIVES: * Participants will discuss the current state of inclusive education in light of the new reform agenda and accountability movement * Participants will discuss how current notions of "value-added" and "evidenced-based" definitions of education and assessment position some students as outside the ranks of inclusive classroom membership * Participants will explore ways to utilize principles of Disability Studies in Education to inform inclusive reform * Participants will share efforts to maintain and increase a commitment to and enactment of inclusion in their local communities.
