There are decades of scientific evidence demonstrating that inclusion benefits all students, not only vulnerable ones, both in their academic results, values and emotions. Those countries and schools advancing in inclusion overcome segregation and exclusion with successful educational actions. They do not force vulnerable children and their families to spread out in other schools in what was named busing (because they were forcefully distributed to schools they had not chosen far from home in buses). Busing created racism, not improvements of the results. Segregation is to label children from some cultural groups as the cause of the bad results of as school provoking the prophecy that fatally fulfils, not taking into account the Pygmalion effect. Those proposing to force children to spread out do not propose it for white, rich families, they do it only for poor ones labelling themas problematic.
