A recent Gallup poll showed that many Americans believe the best schooling for students with autism and other differences would be a separate building from nondisabled peers. 

Each year families and groups report that school districts try to push the most restrictive environment as a placement for students with disabilities, specifically autistic students, regardless of how "high functioning" the student may be.

Why do Americans still believe in these separate--but--equal fallacies when it concerns people with disabilities?

Is segregation a hidden school policy?  What is the agenda behind the building of separate schools for autistic students at tax payers' expense? What can parents and students do about this discrimination?
