That's nice in theory however, not all teachers get the student's IEP.
In fact, where I observe for my field experience (in art-ed) the teacher
I observe rarely see's her classified student's IEP. I do believe in
inclusion, but I feel the school and the staff within the school needs
to be properly prepared for the program to work, and this preparation is
not there in many instances.
