    For me inclusion is not an effective way in Philippine setting. as a future educator it is our job or duty to make the special children be productive in our society but if we merge the special children with the regular student in a classroom type, the first impression of the students would be discriminatory to the special children and in result to such impression is an acquisition of low self-esteem.

    In the Philippine educational system, the application of inclusion is ineffective because if we will base on the usual setting in a public or private school, teachers who are not well equipped with knowledge on how to manage children with special needs will somehow be inefficient in handling the class with students who needs special attention and those usual ones. For instance, the irregularities of the special child will abruptly occur maybe the teacher will have a difficult time in managing the situation and if that happens the child will be in a miserable plight.

    I highly agree about the inclusion in Philippine educational system :) As far as i have known the best thing in order for a child to learn is through experiences. And in that experiences, there is somewhat we call SOCIALIZATION. How can we defend the ultimate goal of Special education if we only let the special children be in a classroom setting wherein his or her classmates are also special children. It is like the level of it’s learning is not “excelling”. And how can they learn if the topic is somewhat not changing or “balik-balik”. How can they become productive?? That is why i really really agree on Inclusion in Philippine educational system and our government should be more aware especifically the DepEd. :)))

    Inclusion is not appropriate to a Philippine setting for what is the use of providing special education to children with exceptionalities if they are fitted in a normal classroom setting in the very first place? And what`s the point in studying special education anyways?that`s why we,as future sped teachers needs to help them be productive by providing proper interventions in which in a normal classroom setting is absent.. in a Philippine setting.

    Inclusion in the Philippines is somehow impossible because there is no facilities and most of the people are not aware about those exceptional children. We are not also prepared to accept this. Some of us will think that, including those exceptional children in a normal education setting will be a risk to the non-exceptional children and also to the teachers. It is really hard for us to understand and accept their behavior. There are many difficulties if inclusion is implemented here in the Philippines, we have no enough knowledge on how to handle them and also how to understand them. Thinking that, our country is not capable of this.

    Inclusion is not effective in philippine setting for it is so hard to manage special children.And there are so many challenges just like with parents include dealing with their frustration over the sometimes difficult behaviors of kids with disabilities, communicating the value of inclusion for general education students as well as special ed students, and minimizing the stress of the over-involved parents of the special education students.So that’s why it is not effective in philippine setting today.Inclusion challenges also to the general educators include sharing responsibilities, sharing spaces, negotiating discipline strategies, choosing the appropriate model for instruction that also fits their teaching style and preferences.No doubt not all teachers are well siuted to partner in inclusion, but skills for collaboration can be learned.

    It’s very difficult to have that “Inclusion” for children with special needs inside a General Education Classroom. This movement is somewhat a predicament for all the people who are involved with the special child – the Regular Education Teacher , the Sped Teacher, the parents of both the Special Child and the regular children and the whole regular school community . The first time I experienced to be a negotiator in the inclusion movement , does not spare me from being hurt. Stereotyping for these children with special needs is very common. Moreover, rejection is familiar thus if it is not only a sin to curse – I would say “ sana in your future life – you will be able to have that special child for you to understand and accept our proposal”.

    But for now, there are still good people out there who are kind-hearted and open-minded. Inclusion is made possible in their regular schools. Shadow teachers are accepted for Integration and Mainstreaming. What is important is – these regular teachers know our objectives for this inclusion. If these kind of people will multiply in its quantity – surely I can say – Inclusion is effective in our Educational System.

      Is inclusion Effective or Ineffective…

      Inclusion in the philippine setting is Ineffective for me…
      As we all know, special children need more attention than the other children. If we put them in a one classroom setting, special children and children in a regular class can affect their attitudes. Some children cannot understand those children who have special needs. They may become targets for bullying, they may feel embarrased in a regular classroom. Time and attention from their teacher may be taken away from the rest of the class to meet the needs of a single student with special needs

      If I am a teacher these inclusion will be ineffective in the philippine setting for it is hard to manage these exceptional children.Just like if the class is discussing activities on saving the environment the deaf-blind student could not work on collage of picture on the topic.Normal students tend to learn with and from each other rather than competing to those balony children.So that’s why it is ineffective.

      I believe that inclusion in Philippines will not be effective for this inclusion is not yet appropriate to Filipinos. I can say that because I know that we Filipinos are not yet ready to be thought of the different things about the special children. And also I believe that in teaching someone it is important that the one you are teaching should be ready to learn about the wonders of special education, that being said, I believe that even we, the students of special education still have the difficulties to understand their changes in behaviors . That being said these inclusion is not yet effective in the Philippine setting.

      Inclusion is no good because first, a special child can’t understand very well if he/she is mixed with a regular student. Second, a teacher sometimes can’t understand the situation of a special children well. Therefore, for me, inclusion is no good.
