Inclusion Debate. Inclusion is a controversial concept in education because it relates to our values in education, as well as socially. Some of the questions that surround this topic are: do we value all children equally? What does “inclusion” mean? Does it mean the same thing to everyone? Are there some children for whom inclusion is inappropriate? Are there some teachers and/or schools that cannot or will not provide adequate and effective inclusive settings to meet the needs of all students?
