You might be surprised by the most compelling reason filmmaker Dan Habib makes for inclusive education in his TEDx AmoskeagMillyard talk
(Hint: it's not about his son, Samuel!)
The U.S. Department of Education reports that 56% of U.S. students with developmental or intellectual disabilities spend their entire day in special education classrooms.
Habib (creator of the documentary films Including Samuel
and Who Cares About Kelsey?
) used his 18-minute TEDx talk to make a powerful case for ending the systemic segregation of students with disabilities.
TEDx events are independently produced and based on the TED agenda "to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation."
