Providing Support to Families of Children with Special Needs

Children Reading the Holy Bible

Welcome

The mission of  Inclusion Revolution is to support families and their children through comprehensive support and services so that all students have the same opportunities for success.

Education Advocate Services

Approximately 14 percent of students in the United States have disabilities. Despite federal laws mandating that all students are entitled to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE), there are significant and enduring achievement gaps for students with disabilities. The situation is even more challenging for disabled students from racial and ethnic minority backgrounds, as their outcomes tend to worsen. In essence, we have become too complacent with the failure to support students with disabilities adequately. Addressing this issue requires substantial changes in our public education system. While noteworthy innovations have resulted from education reform efforts over the past few decades, charter schools and districts with high levels of choice have not fully or consistently utilized the autonomy granted by state charter school laws to serve students with disabilities effectively.

Studies have documented the challenges charter schools face in establishing sufficient resources to deliver high-quality special education programs. These schools often operate as independent or semi-independent districts, which means they have to navigate systems primarily designed for traditional school districts. Unfortunately, there are still prevalent misconceptions about charter schools' capacity and responsibility to educate students with disabilities. Additionally, the complex combination of federal, state, and district guidelines, as well as funding mechanisms, has created a perplexing maze that is difficult for both schools and families to navigate.

If we continue to hire great teachers but do not create environments to retain them, we will continue to fight a losing battle.
