Physical Disability - Inclusion versus Special Schools

To be 'special' in a mainstream school, or 'normal' in a special school?

Inclusion is meant to be the way we're supposed to be heading, yet more and more children are moving into special from mainstream. Is it something to do with the question above? Inclusion is based on the premise that it is valuable for both disabled and able bodied students, to be educated together. Very few people disagree with this. There are, of course, difficulties for physically disabled students with the environment in most mainstream schools. This needs money spent. However, many children who can cope, physically, with mainstream school, even though they have a disability, are ending up back at special schools.
