February is National Inclusive Education Month

Shared from Canadian Association for Community Living:

National Inclusive Education Month portrays how the development of inclusive schools and inclusive school practices help to provide quality education to an increasingly diverse student population, including students with an intellectual disability.

For every weekday of February, Dr. Gordon Porter and his team of contributors will be sharing a personal story related to inclusive education on the Inclusive Education Canada webpage and its social media outlets.

Inclusive Education Month is a time for members of the Community Living movement to promote and raise awareness about inclusive education. In addition to breaking down myths about inclusive education, this special month provides educators, students and parents an opportunity to share ideas on strategies to enhance inclusion and successful school experiences for every child.

With award ceremonies and events scheduled across the country, Inclusive Education month also acknowledges and recognizes the commitment and effort of teachers, administrators, students, and families who contribute to successful inclusion of students in schools and classrooms throughout Canada.

Look for these special features in our February issue of Inclusion Matters, and follow Inclusive Education Canada to read inspiring education stories every day in February!”
