Inclusive Practice in Schools is No Longer Optional

Inclusive practice in schools is no longer optional. Many experts now consider it a requirement, and more and more educators are looking for ways to make inclusive teaching a priority.

2020 has been heralded the “decade of action” in education, and it’s clear that change needs to happen now. Our master’s course in Inclusive Education is one of the most powerful Postgraduate courses you can study if you’re passionate about positive transformation in schools.

UNESCO: “Inclusive education is non-negotiable”

In the latest Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report, there’s big emphasis on making education a universal right and a reality for all. UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) chief, Audrey Azoulay, said in the report’s forward that inclusive education should be a “non-negotiable” right for children.

While changes have been put into place in a lot of schools already, well-meaning policies often falter. Therefore, the right leadership is essential if we want to create effective change for students of all abilities and backgrounds.

The first step for creating a successful inclusion policy in schools is to analyse failures. This means we can no longer accept the status quo, and we must challenge problems and find creative solutions to move forward.

Identifying different forms of exclusion

Inclusive practice in schools starts with looking at what’s not working so far. In order to improve the current situation, leaders must identify existing forms of exclusion.

Stigma, stereotypes and discrimination must be eradicated to prevent alienation in classrooms. This is imperative if educational leaders are to make a real difference to children’s lives and improve inclusion in primary schools, secondary schools and higher education.

Our Inclusive Education master’s course gives educational professionals the knowledge and tools they need to implement fair access to learning. Additionally, they will also learn advanced skills for critically evaluating policies for equity, equality and inclusion.
