Historically, individuals and members of specific groups have always been denied equality in the society in which they live. Denials for equality have been based upon a person's: (a) gender, such as women's suffrage (b) race, such as Rosa Parks and her fearless refusal to give up her seat on a bus; and (c) age, the current trend of some companies to enforce a mandatory retirement age upon employees, even if they are still productive. Currently, a similar equality issue is at stake because of the policy to include disabled students into the regular classroom with their nondisabled peers. As the practice of inclusion of disabled students in the regular classroom increases, it is evident that many teachers have both positive and negative attitudes toward it.
