Should children with special needs be taught alongside children who do not have special needs?

Why? Why would you do that to the special needs child who obviously needs special attention? The extra attention will make other around him or her resentful. The child who obviously doesn't fit in will be constantly reminded of how different they are as kids close by make fun of them. It would be torture to the special needs child. And it is natural to want to make sure people are on a level playing field. If the special needs child has a learning disability they cannot keep up with the rest of the class so instead, the rest of the class has to be taught at a slower pace. Why should they have to do this? It makes no sense. If the special needs child has physical impairments but is mentally equal with their peers, it MAY make some sort of sense as long as it doesn;t present an unnecessary level of distraction for the rest of the class after they have time to adjust. For example, a child with terets spouting out obscenitites will have disruptive effects on the class throughout the year and not just at the beginning. The onlyreason anyone ever wants to do this is because it makes the parent FEEL better. It allows them to pretend that their child does not have a disability. When in fact, the child needs special attention not granted to others. Otherwise this child would not be called "special needs". The ONLY time this should be allowed is when the child themselves has expressed a desire from within to attempt to fit in with normal society. If this is the case, the kid should not be denied. Obviously at this point they are mentally capable of understanding the social consequences of their separation from the "normal" groups. This is a high-level function of the human brain and shows that the child is developmentally capable of entering that atmosphere. If the kid has not themselves expressed a desire to fit in, don;t force it upon them.More OpinionsIn the majority of US states "main streaming" of special needs students into the public school system is the law, the premise being that it will better prepare them for society in the general sense. A special needs student usually spends part of his or her learning time in a traditional classroom setting and the rest of the school day in an environment that is structured to his or her needs. To deliberately set children apart who are able to participate in normal learning conditions is a violation of their civil rights and quite simply cruel. Parents are not in denial, many cannot afford private education, many communtities do not have the funding for special education schools and there is absolutely no reason that special needs children cannot interact with other students when it does not constitute a physical danger or emotional trauma (generally instilled by supposed adults) to themselves or others.Depnds on what their special need is. If they need a care nurse with them then not right along side but at least in the same school. If they just need medication for add or adhd then they can be taught right along side other children but not given extra time for anything or special attention. _____________________________________________________ Up till High School I was in the Rescores Room. And, yes kids make fun of me. Don't kids do that to make themselves look bigger then others. Every day after I got home from school I would ask my mom "Why did God make me this way"? She tried the best she could to answer but it wasn't enough. I just wanted to be like all the other kids not in Special Ed. In High School I was in a few Special Ed classes. But what they called Basic Classes. Being in the Special Olympics really helped me cope too. yes, kids want to hang out with kids and they want to think they are equal so yes if they wouldn't mind. Ask them if they want to be with regular kids or special education kids. The thing is that cool kids are the ones that hang if he wants to be with them then put him the regular kids but if not put him with special education students like they want. Parents just talk with your child and ask him want he wants to do.
