Inclusion was well in effect long before NCLB. No it wasn't. It might have been where you live, but it wasn't in many parts of the country.
OP, there is a lot of good information about NCLB and IDEA at http://www.wrightslaw.com/
Pete Wright, on of the firms co-founders is probably the best special education attorney in the country. If you ever have an opportunity to attend one of his seminars please do.
NCLB does have problems. But, it also has some very positive things, especially those involving special needs children. You never hear about the good things though. The whole thing doesn't need to be tossed though, just the parts of it that don't work. Things like testing. It is sort of crazy to have a law that is so supportive of special needs turn around and use those very kids to skew the test results.
