Here in Germany there is currently a small movement gaining more attention which believes that handicapped children should be allowed to learn among normal children.
The only problem I personally see here is that of bullying, but with a well-made "inclusion", it wouldn't be a problem, because there would be other children always defending and caring for the handicapped children.
The thought-model behind this is not to treat handicapped children as "outsiders" by placing them into their own kinds of schools; instead, they should - or o the movement people say/believe - be "included" into normal society as soon as possible in order to develop a healthy self-esteem.
