As I read this, I started to think about how my high school's inclusion program was set up. I came up with the fact that if a student had a mild to moderate disability, they were included in standard or the lowest level learning classes. If the student had a severe case of disability, they were put into the special needs classroom. There was always other students in that classroom doing work with them and even when they went to phys. ed they had another student without disabilities there helping them do the activities.
As for the discrimination aspect of this reading, there wasnt much in my high school that i know about. There were chances for the disabled students to play sports if they wanted. There was always the opportunity for them to participate in the Special Olympics. This also makes me think of when i was younger and in girl scouts. We did something called Mini Camp. This camp was always during the school vacation weeks and it was in the morning so that parents had an almost built in babysitter for them during that week. There were a few girls that attended the camp that had down syndrome. We always made sure that we incorporated them into the activities, most of the time it was having them sit at the same table with the other girls and having one of the "leaders" helping them with the projects.
In class i would like to talk about anyone else's experiences. Were they good or bad? If they were bad, how do you think the school or the people that made that situation bad could have changed it?
