Accommodating disabilities in classrooms backdating an employment contract start date
Inclusion rates decreased by more than 1 percentage point for 3 of 52 jurisdictions at each grade.
Determining whether each jurisdiction has met the NAEP inclusion goals involves looking at three different inclusion rates—an overall inclusion rate, an inclusion rate for SD students, and an inclusion rate for ELL students.
LDA strongly support the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) which mandates: LDA believes that the placement of ALL children with disabilities in the regular education classroom is as great a violation of IDEA as the placement of ALL children in separate classrooms on the basis of their type of disability.
It is important for NAEP to assess as many students selected to participate as possible. The National Assessment Governing Board, which sets policy for NAEP, has been exploring ways to ensure that NAEP continues to appropriately include as many students as possible and to do so in a consistent manner for all jurisdictions assessed and reported.
As such, the inclusion rates are associated with a margin of error.
The margin of error for each jurisdiction’s inclusion rate was taken into account when comparing it to the corresponding inclusion goal.
The Learning Disabilities Association of America does not support ‘full inclusion’ or any policies that mandate the same placement, instruction, or treatment for ALL students with learning disabilities.
