Please explain Da Vinci and Einstein. Please explain also how it is helpful for the other 30 students in my class when the one "inclusion" child acts out so badly the class order is destroyed. Because this behavior is indicated in the child's IEP as a "handicapping condition", the child may not be remoeved from the classroom simply because he throws furniture at other students.
The notion that it is not possible for someone to be smarter than someone else or that everyone should be in the same place at the same time is counterproductive.
