Electronic Journal for Inclusive Education

Abstract

We've all heard the story of the little boy's first day in first grade. When the big hand and the little hand were both pointing straight up, he put on his jacket and began gathering up his things to go home. The teacher explained to Tommy that he was big boy now, and that he didn't go home at lunch like he did when he was in kindergarten; first graders stay at school all day.

"Who signed me up for this?" Tony demanded.

I'm glad someone signed me up to be a part of this first edition the Electronic Journal of Inclusive Education. I commend Wright State University for their leadership in providing a forum for the exchange of ideas, sharing practices, and discussion of the collection and use of data to better prepare students with disabilities to become successful adults.
