There's a recurring problem that special education programs and their students are not treated with equal understanding. Students in the special education program deserve an equal opportunity to learn and achieve, but there is a problem with understanding how to teach students with physical and learning disabilities that benefits them and their unique individual learning style. This project dives into that idea of universal learning and ways that inclusion and education about disabilities can affect special education programs. During the project students will complete a survey on their experiences with inclusion and disabilities in the learning environment to show the gap of knowledge and understanding about learning and inclusion in schools.
The AAR program is a unique opportunity for Palo Alto Unified School District students, in grades 10-12, to engage in original research in an area of their choosing. Students are paired with mentors who are experts in the field of the student's choosing.
