Expand your toolbox:Over a decade ago, Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert Sutton wrote The Knowing-Doing Gap: How Smart Companies Turn Knowledge into Action. Their premise was that although many executives, managers, and leaders knowledgeable and well trained, they still are not often doing what they know should be done. This idea extends just as easily to public education as it does to Fortune 500 companies, and led to the development of Stetson’s Inclusive Education Knowing-Doing Gap Instrument. It’s designed to be completed by an individual leader, leadership team, teachers, administrative teams, and even parents. Find out more about how this tool can make a difference for the success of your students.
Open new doors:When all students are given access to the general curriculum, great things are made possible. Here are just a few researched-based long-term benefits:

- Stronger likelihood of exit from special education.
