Inclusive Education Quotes

Inclusive education is not an act of charity, it is an act of humanity. It acknowledges the humanity of all children and recognises that each child has a natural desire to learn. It removes barriers to learning and participation so that every child can take part in every aspect of school life, as far or as fast as her or his abilities allow. Inclusive education is about all children learning together, with appropriate support for those who may have difficulties.
