"The Handbook of Inclusive Education for Educators, Administrators, and Planners: Within Walls, Without Boundaries, is a noteworthy addition to the growing library of materials on inclusion of persons with disabilities in the educational process.  The Handbook is best suited for teachers and other educators who work with students with disabilities.  It is full of excellent suggestions, and moreover, many of the concepts pertaining to students with disabilities are also relevant for students of color and other students who have been marginalized in the education process." —THE REVIEW OF DISABILITY STUDIES
