Right on.

"Full inclusion" works well when school districts devote sufficient 
resources to hire qualified personnel and provide textbooks, technology 
and the like for blind students in their districts. Unfortunately, this 
is all-too-often not the case.

It seems that there is more to the equation here than money concernes,
although certainly money shapes the debate. There are some who actually
believe that places like schools for the blind are somehow regressive. 
seen the term "segregation" used, even by some blind people. Full 
is a great ideal, and it works well in a vast majority of cases, but not
all. The bottom line is, schools for the blind are still very much 
and closing them will cause untold harm to the individuals these 
are professing to help.
