This article constitutes the culmination in a review of 58 sources by a group of first year master’s degree students in a problems and issues in secondary education course to determine “Is Full Inclusion Desirable?” Full inclusion means that all students, regardless of handicapping condition or severity, will be in a regular classroom/program full time.
