What the Expert Says:

Special needs children may require specialized teaching in a smaller group. Inclusion means the student is in regular class receiving support. Resource classroom or self-contained class are instructional settings that require the student to be removed from the regular classroom to receive more instructional support.

Ask for clarification about what the committee is recommending. The parent may disagree or ask for a specific time for the student to be in a specific setting. What are the criteria for the child to return to the regular classroom?

special needs children need special learning envireonments and one of these is a smaller group or class.  they fair better as it provides one to one teaching and the program is specific for that child.  each school has its criteria and you need to see which one fits your child the best.  at times they stay in the speacial needs school, at times they are sent back into mainstream learning environments.
