This volume guides readers toward understanding and meeting the needs of students with exceptionalities. This book maintains the critical information of the traditional introductory text: the history of special education, state and federal legislation, and the role of the courts. It elaborates the steps in the identification and assessment process as well as the development of an individualized educational program (IEP). It describes critical directions in special education, such as the least restrictive environment and the continuum of services. Through discussing movements such as the Regular Education Initiative, it traces how we arrived at the controversial sentiments of today. This text provides an objective overview of responses of experts who feel positively or negatively about directions toward inclusion.

Testing and Inclusive Schooling provides a comparative perspective on seemingly incompatible global agendas and efforts to include all children in the general school system, thus reducing exclusion. With an examination of the international testing culture and the politics of inclusion currently permeating national school reforms, this book raises a critical and constructive discussion of these movements, which appear to support one another, yet simultaneously offer profound contradictions. With contributions from around the world, the book analyses the dilemma arising between reforms that urge schools to move towards a constantly higher academic level, and those who practice a politics of inclusion leading to a greater degree of student diversity. The book considers the types of problems that arise when reforms implemented at the international level are transformed into policies and practices, firmly placing global educational efforts into perspective by highlighting a range of different cases at both national and local levels. Testing and Inclusive Schooling sheds light on new possibilities for educational improvements in global and local contexts and is essential reading for academics, researchers and postgraduate students interested in international and comparative education, assessment technologies and practices, inclusion, educational psychology and educational policy.
