What came to be known as the full inclusion movement (FIM) of the late 20th century (see Fuchs & Fuchs, 1994) is surely among the most fatuous notions in contemporary education. The FIM extends into at least the first decades of the 21st century and has become international in scope. We downloaded the following definition of full inclusion from the Wisconsin Education Association Council web site (WEAC.org) on March 1, 2014: “Full inclusion means that all students, regardless of handicapping condition or severity, will be in a regular classroom/program full time. All services must be taken to the child in that setting.”
