While some schools are talking about seclusion, South View Middle School is using Inclusion rather than seclusion to break down barriers.  We talk about inclusion often.  Inclusion is important, not only for students with disabilities, but for their general education peers as well.  So nearly ten years ago, special education teacher Jessica Cherne and a group of middle-school students started Peer Insights.  Check out this story on Disability Scoop.  South View is a glowing example of how inclusion can break down barriers and foster growth and understanding.
