Quality inclusive education is a goal and a requirement for educators today. In The Inclusive Education Checklist, authors Richard Villa and Jacqueline Thousand, who have spent over four decades advocating for and supporting school communities to initiate, implement, and sustain inclusive education best practices, synthesize their experience and extensive research to provide educators with an insightful and practical tool for implementing, assessing and optimizing inclusive education. The book offers a checklist of 15 key inclusive education best practices that together comprise quality inclusive education. Each chapter details an individual best practice and provides a list of 8-32 best practice indicators that deconstruct the best practice. Readers are instructed to rate the degree to which the each indicator occurs in their school in a scoring box to the left of the indicator. Instructions are provided for how to calculate and interpret the total score, mean score, and range of scores. The Inclusive Education Checklist is an invaluable resource for helping schools, districts, administrators, policy makers, teachers, paraprofessionals and all those committed to inclusive education understand what inclusion is, where their school is on the journey to being truly inclusive, and what needs to be done to ensure continuous improvement.
