Beyond Equality in the American Classroom

Beyond Equality in the American Classroom

Beyond Equality in the American Classroom: The Case for Inclusive Education addresses the basis of inclusive education for students with exceptionalities from the perspective of social justice and scholarship-activism. Drawing on historical, legislative, and philosophical references, this book builds the case for including individuals with exceptionalities in general education classrooms as a matter of social justice and civil rights. Providing a comprehensive foundation for exploring the concept of inclusive education scholastically, Shyman provides a well-organized and clearly-structured treatise for both the philosophy of inclusive education as well as a means of putting inclusive education into practice in American schools. With pointed critiques of the current trend of standardization and traditionalization in the current educational climate, a new philosophy for addressing inclusive education is put forth. The book is both readable and scholastically legitimate, and can be adapted for personal academic use or as a teaching tool for undergraduate or graduate classes in the areas of education, philosophy and sociology.
