The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) legally protects students’ access to the least restrictive learning environment (LRE). When possible, placing students with disabilities in general education classrooms with minimal intervention is required. The positive effects of inclusion have been supported in research over the years, yet schools continue to segregate classrooms in ways that are not aligned with the LRE guidance. This project explores the IDEA law, LRE guidance, and implementation of inclusion in schools.
