Not only do teachers think D/HH students are not as smart as hearing students, but they often punish D/HH students for not being able to hear. “More than half of the responses in [the negative teacher experience] category related incidents in which the deaf or hard-of-hearing stude... ... middle of paper ... ...ing students refrained from using stigmas and norms to define others, they could actually learn a lot from D/HH students about ASL and Deaf Culture. The teachers at these schools could also benefit from learning about deafness, because this incite could make their classrooms a more inviting place for all students to learn. School systems which work hard towards creating the best mainstreaming programs would also benefit, by having a program that parents want to send their children to. But above all, D/HH students would benefit from being part of a well-planned mainstream program.
Eventually, lack of educational attainment for a child, despite additional support has great impact on child’s moral and emotional development besides career and growth prospects. Nevertheless, Moyles, J. et al (2002) stated underachievement can be due to various reasons as ethnicity, bullying or social inequality (pg 253). Perhaps, this may be due to growing demands in bigger class size; teachers are unable to attend to individual need of a child. However, stronge et al (2004) stated, an efficient teacher has psychological influence on children, stronger the teacher stronger the achievement (cited Rubio, M. C. 2009, Online). Teachers should encourage the pupil to become independent and effective learners.
The focus of school should be to educate children in a manner and environment which supports and values them as people (Vann 33). The best program is the one which provides a combination of approaches that best suits each individual child (Vann 33). Inclusion is detrimental to both regular and special needs students because of the complicated and strenuous learning environment it creates. Though there are many variations in the inclusion technique, children are still being helped inadequately and they are not accomplishing the academic achievements that they could. Every child deserves to be in an environment where they will succeed academically and emotionally.
Mainstreaming children with special needs has been a huge controversy in education. Many students with a disability require special attention and need to be in an environment where teachers can meet these needs. According to opposition, placing disabled and non-disabled kids in the same classroom will increase academic engagement and reduce problem behaviors. However, educators prove that special needs children are being bullied, still lag behind their non-disabled peers in educational achievements and are more likely to drop out of school. (Need to cite) Mainstreaming children will promote child bullying and ongoing stereotypes that undermine their ability to compete in the classroom.
Regular students in school also debate to themselves to make the decision of dropping out from time to time, from the stress levels of piling assignments. Larger high schools also can be difficult for students who attend, which gives them less one-on-one attention from teachers. Immigrants even, have a much more increased chance of dropping out from school from the transition of moving from one country to another. Teachers playing a roll and becoming more helpful and understanding of trouble students have outside of school, such as connecting and being open with their students, could make the largest difference. Schools should provide programs for tutoring, mentoring, and counseling for kids to have for and outside to help them survive through school (Smink, “A Proven Solution for Dropout Pr... ... middle of paper ... ...d completing school should be one of them.

Conclusion As one can see, society is pushing for Inclusion in conventional classroom settings. There are many advantages and disadvantages to Inclusion. Really, you have to take each case on an individual basis and see what is best for the disabled child and the non-disabled child in the classroom.
Consequently, it makes their children miss out essential social skills. They would not have the same skills that children who study at traditional schools have because they do not study with a group that help them to learn important skills to interact with others.

For these reasons, traditional schools have many positive impacts on students.
Gifted learning is a highly controversial topic in the world of education. Some people believe that having a separate class for “gifted” students allows for more growth and learning to take pace; contrary to that belief, there are some people who believe that segregating public class rooms this way hinders learning, and creates class rooms that are not eclectic and that do not allow peer to peer learning. Learning is a highly individual subject and every student learns differently. If the education system in the United States is to change their test scores, they will move away from the philosophy of integration and inclusion and towards an educational philosophy of creating an IEP for each student, and keep class sizes as small as possible with children that learn similarly. This paper will attempt to explore the facts and professional opinions about the integration or segregation of public schools by ability level, and prove that more individual teaching will lead to improved learning.
Health problems also affect children’s abilities to take opportunity of primary education (Frankema 2008). Cultural and economic expectations also negatively affect many kids, as girls may be expected to do domestic work and boys to do outside labor; child labor take educational opportunities away (Torche 2010; Frankema 2008). Also, many governments in Latin America have neoliberal policies that favor economic development have cut social and education spending, negatively affecting the educational opportunities and achievement of children. Inequality in educational opportunities deprives many children and society of power, participation, and development in a world where education is especially expected for all types of positions. It results in an unfair system where all children do not have the chance to compete in society and reach types of independence including intellectual and financial.
Children need a healthy balance between play and academics. Social and emotional learning has proved to enhance academic learning, children need a healthy balance of these in school to promote optimal learning. It can be concerning if some of the activities that promote a child’s ability to learn are used more at the expense of others. Unfortunately, despite the benefits of play for both children and caregivers, reducing time for free play to make room for more academics has become a trend. This trend even affected grades as low as kindergarten.
