Columnist Leigh Graham: Must Commit to Supporting High-Needs Students

Daily Hampshire Gazette, 2.12.18

Opinion-editorial by Leigh Graham of Northampton, has a child at Bridge Street School. She is a professor of urban policy and planning at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, and The Graduate Center, City University of New York. The implementation of a new inclusion model in Northampton’s elementary schools, Welcoming Inclusion in Northampton Schools (WINS), has been extensively covered in the Gazette since it was proposed in February 2017. Meant to reduce the segregation of students with disabilities placed in district-wide separate programs, WINS uses a combination of higher class sizes and co-teaching between general education and special education teachers to keep children with disabilities in general education classrooms throughout the day.
