Inclusive classrooms open doors for learning 

Alyssa Luther holds one of the highest grades in her algebra class at Stadium High School. Yet her success
in algebra is far from guaranteed: Alyssa, like 12 percent of students in Tacoma Public Schools, qualifies
as a special education student because of a learning disability.

placing them in classrooms with their peers without disabilities. In that setting—called an “inclusion classroom” —students learn from each other and often surpass expectations.
