This is a question about “inclusion for all” and it is being answered by John Price, the former principal of John J. Audubon School in Chicago.

As Price points out, teachers have to be explicit in their support of inclusion and their conversations about it.

John and the wonderful staff at the school received a lot of attention for not only their jump in test scores but for their commitment to differentiated instruction and inclusive education.
