Dr. Ilene Schwartz, professor and director of the Haring Center for Inclusive Education, and the Haring Center’s work was featured in an article by The Bellingham Herald titled “‘All means all’: Sehome High School models a new standard of inclusive learning.” The article highlights the Haring Center’s work with Sehome High School, one of 16 Inclusionary Practices Demonstration Sites in Washington. Sehome High School considers every student to be a general education student and Ilene is quoted in the article as saying “What Sehome has done is that they’ve taken that very seriously and they say, ‘You’re a basic [education] student. Now what do we need? What else do we need to provide you, what scaffolds do we need to put around you? What support do we need to provide so that you’re successful, both in general ed, and in learning the other things that you might need to learn because of your disability.’”
