Inclusive education is a field and a movement that discuss how the difference is treated and understood by schools and teachers. The education and the difference rights to everyone are starting points for the effectiveness of this process, which should be constantly evaluated to improve the quality of education. This study aims to evaluate the quality of education for the target group of special education students (named "Público-alvo da Educação Especial" - PAEE), considering existing documents, developed practices, continuing education courses offered and social validity of those involved.
