Association of Workers for Children with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties

The National body for EBD professionals have recently debated the subject of inclusion and the first two pages of their Newsletter is devoted to the subject. They go right to the heart of the subject with the question "What are we trying to achieve by inclusion". The then go on to rationalise "Why Inclusion". If we are committed to the best possible education of all children, it must surely follow that inclusion is only right if this is what it achieves. But we must challenge the over simple view that keeping children in mainstream is a good thing in itself.
