Inclusive classrooms are proven to be successful all over the world. Inclusive classrooms are when special education students are in general education classrooms all day long receiving the same educational instruction. Inclusive classrooms have a positive effect on not just special education students but the general education students as week. Inclusive classrooms have been proven to reduce bullying, increase acceptance of differences, increase academic success and improve overall school satisfaction. The problem being, inclusive classrooms aren’t generally practiced in the United States, even though they are proven to be effective. In order to make inclusive classrooms the standard instead of an option is to get all educators, school administrators, students and parents educated on what inclusive classrooms are. There is research from many countries and the United States that proves that inclusive classrooms are the best option for all students.
