About PUC Inclusion and Special Education
For most of the short history of special education, the common practice was to pull children with disabilities out of regular classrooms for some or even all of the school day. In what is called a “resource room,” they would receive instruction from teachers trained to modify their instructional techniques depending on the nature of the child’s disability. It seemed more efficient to provide specialized instruction in separate classrooms, where children with disabilities could receive individualized attention without having to alter the mainstream curriculum that their peers received.
