No child left behind.

That is the current educational thrust created by Federal Lawin 2001. The question is does it include those bound to wheelchairs?

While students with special needs used to be relegated to “Special Education Classes”, increasingly many of these students are being place in inclusive classrooms. Though some originally viewed this trend as a way for schools to save money, studies have found that the benefits of inclusive classrooms are wide spread both for the students with special needs and the non-identified students.
