Synopsis: "Your Students, My Students, Our Students: Rethinking Equitable and Inclusive Classrooms" deftly explores the hard truths of current special education practice and outlines five essential disruptions to the status quo.

The collaborative educational experts Lee Ann Jung, Nancy Frey, Douglas Fisher, and Julie Kroener show how to: Establish a school culture that champions equity and inclusion; Rethink the long-standing structure of least restrictive environment and the resulting service delivery: Leverage the strengths of all educators to provide appropriate support and challenge; Collaborate on the delivery of instruction and intervention; Honor the aspirations of each student and plan accordingly.

To realize authentic and equitable inclusion, classroom teachers must relentlessly and collectively pursue change. "Your Students, My Students, Our Students" was not written for "special educators" or "general educators" but for all educators as it informatively addresses the challenges, maps out the solutions, and provides tools and inspiration for the work ahead.

Of special note is the inclusion of real-life examples of empowerment and success that illustrate just what's possible when educators commit to the belief that every student belongs to all of us and all students deserve learning experiences that will equip them to live full and rewarding lives.

Critique: An ideal instructional resource and guide, "Your Students, My Students, Our Students: Rethinking Equitable and Inclusive Classrooms" is unreservedly recommended for school district in-service workshops, college and university library Teacher Education collections and supplemental curriculum lists. It should be noted for the personal reading lists of teachers, school administrators, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject that "Your Students, My Students, Our Students: Rethinking Equitable and Inclusive Classrooms" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $29.40).
