Inclusive education continues to be an exciting but challenging component of the everyday life of the classroom teacher. Whist there is no recipe for successful inclusion, meaningful inclusion involves engaging in a flexible process in which educators work in partnership with parents, students, and other professionals in order to meet the needs of all children.
Drawing from conceptual principles and empirical findings, this fully revised edition of Inclusive Education demonstrates how to empower teachers and leaders and foster professional practices that create a successful inclusive school community. Presenting a hands-on process that addresses evidence, partnerships, curriculum and instruction, this book strikes the right balance between theory and practice. The authors provide educational leaders and school reformers with tools for collaborating and doing the work of improving inclusive practices for equity and student learning.
Including links to web resources that include a huge range of planning templates and assessment tools, as well as procedures to create school-based leadership teams to drive and sustain discussions and decision-making, this extensive text and collection of tools is invaluable for students, school leaders and teachers who are serious about ensuring success for all students.
