For teachers who want to make a commitment to including every child in their classroom, here is an in-depth look at the pedagogy of Inclusive Education and how you can apply it in your teaching.
Inclusive Education tries to address the imbalances and exclusions of the past, ensuring that all children are able to enjoy the fundamental right to basic education. Inspired by the growing culture of human rights, Inclusive Education focused on integrating children with disabilities and specific barriers to learning into school communities. It has now been expanded to address all forms of exclusion including that based on race, language, gender, sexuality, economics class and nationality, amongst other things. Inclusive Education recognises that all learners have special needs, barriers to learning and valuable individual strengths.
