Md. county focuses on life skills for those not in inclusion programs

The Montgomery County school district in Maryland began phasing out special-education "learning centers" five years ago in favor of inclusion for most students with disabilities. Now just 2% of special-needs students are in self-contained programs -- down from 25%. Teachers in those programs work to encourage camaraderie and teach students skills they will need to live independently after graduation. The Washington Post
