Trends come and go in our state’s school districts and teacher education programs—trends which are usually created in administrative positions or through government legislation. Recent trends and reforms in special education have created several problematic areas of assistance for struggling learners. Examining these models of special education reform, and researching their flaws allows educators to re-evaluate their roles as “special” educators, within the larger context of the education system. Specifically examined models of special education are: the process of classroom inclusion and the consultant teacher model, the purpose and application of the “resource room” model, and the “response-to-intervention” model of measuring the goals of learners.
