School Inclusion: it’s time
International agreements, government legislation, departmental and agency policy, decades of international research, the parent movement and most countries across the world assert that inclusive education is a human right. Inclusive education means that all students can access and fully participate in teaching and learning experiences, together and on an equal basis with their similarly-aged peers. Inclusive education is increasingly being accepted as essential to the development of inclusive, peaceful and fair societies.
This seminar will cover the definition, rationale and evidence for inclusion, as well as specific examples of how it is being achieved across the world. Some steps that could be taken by teachers and schools to ensure their school is inclusive will also be discussed.
It is FREE to attend and morning tea will be provided.
