In 1991, Peter Gwazdauskas, a third-grader with Down syndrome, became one of the first students with severe disabilities to attend classes at his southern Virginia elementary school, an experience that was documented in Gerardine Wurzburg’s HBO special “Educating Peter.” It won an Oscar at the 65th Academy Awards in 1993 for Best Documentary Short Subject.

We have discussed the law of the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). Very often this can lead to Mainstreaming/ Inclusion.

In the award-winning documentary “Educating Peter,” there are many diverse opinions as to whom, if anyone, really gained from this educational experiment.

In a well-constructed essay, (1-2 pages, informal, so APA not required) please write from your own perspective who gained & who lost from this setting and how?

The child himself.
His classmates.
His teachers.
His parents.
Society as a whole.
Was it worth the effort to mainstream Peter?

Did they educate Peter according to his needs?

Is it a good idea?

Does it work until a certain age?

Is this what the law of LRE is all about?

In what ways would YOU have acted differently than the teacher?

How would you handle all the different academic levels being taught?

Please keep in mind, this film was made in 1991, almost 30 years ago and as a society, we have gotten SO MUCH BETTER at inclusion and understanding the law of LRE. What are some things that would be different today, if Peter was going to school?

NOT every question has to be answered, they are just points to ponder and to give you a starting point.
