Schools are moving toward inclusive models for educating students with disabilities, said Thomas Hehir, former director the Education Department's Office of Special Education Programs, in a radio interview. He said schools should focus on positive teaching methods that look for what students are capable of doing. "There are lots of success stories of students with disabilities, of school districts that have engaged in effective, inclusive practices for kids," said Hehir, a professor at Harvard's Graduate School of Education.
