5 Videos That Will Change Your Mind About Inclusive Education

5 Videos That Will Change Your Mind About Inclusive Education | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

I don’t know which side of the fence you are on in regard to inclusive education. And for all intents and purposes…it does not matter. This post could just as easily have been called, No…Really…I’m Not Crazy…Inclusive Education Works! Usually when I talk to people who are not familiar with the idea of having students with disabilities (including significant disabilities) in the general education setting they say they are having a hard time “wrapping their head around it” or want to see “what it actually looks like”. So…just for those of you who need to see it to believe it, I have picked out five videos that will most definitely change your mind about whether inclusive education is really a good thing or not (or at least they should). 

Marie Schoeman's insight:

These videos show what can be done if people have the right attitudes

I love this idea, but how long is it going to take to implement from a practical perspective... how many children will pass through the system before we can implement?

Think the Disability Inclusion Movement Isn't About You? Think Again

Think the Disability Inclusion Movement Isn't About You? Think Again | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it
Separate is no longer equal. The movement for disability inclusion is premised on the belief that those with disabilities are entitled to lives of opportunity, independence and dignity. Moreover, society as a whole benefits when this population is included and empowered.
Marie Schoeman's insight:

25 Years after the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act, too many people are still thinking that persons with disabilities are better off when they are segregated. Sadly that is true for most parts of the world. We have a long way to go before people with disabilities aren't just perceived as charity cases but as individuals entitled to have their rights honored by society.

Witness: Sidelined in South Africa For Being Different

Witness: Sidelined in South Africa For Being Different | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it
Ntsikelelo is small for his age, and quite a handful. One moment, the 8-year old rolls around on the floor, the next instant he paces the room, impatiently and with big strides. The colorful picture books his mother has spread out on a low table hardly capture his attention. With a shrug he turns his back on them and walks off, shaking his head and waving his hand irritably -- a gesture that seems more befitting of a cantankerous old man than a wiry child.
Marie Schoeman's insight:

South Africa was one of the first countries to ratify the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and made a commitment to prioritize access to inclusive education for children with disabilities in its “Education White Paper 6.” However, 14 years later, this progressive policy that would guarantee children with disabilities the right to learn alongside their peers, has still not translated into equal opportunities or protection from discrimination for affected children, Human Rights Watch found in a new report, “South Africa: ‘Complicit in Exclusion’. Failures to Guarantee an Equal Right to Education for Children with Disabilities in South Africa.”

Inclusive education means all children are included in every way, not just in theory

Inclusive education means all children are included in every way, not just in theory | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it
Recent articles question whether inclusive education can do more harm than good. However, neither article presents examples of inclusion. Rather, they present tragic examples of exclusion that are claimed to be inclusion-not-working.
Marie Schoeman's insight:

Supports for inclusion are embedded within everyday practices. If aides are employed they circulate around the classroom, or spend time assisting the teacher and making adaptations to materials, rather than being off in a corner with one particular child

The competition has grown into a global movement for equality, rights and dignity for the world’s most vulnerable population.

The competition, started in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, has grown into a global movement, an informal tribe whose membership — those with autism, Down syndrome, learning disabilities, fragile X syndrome and other conditions — transcends all boundaries. Whatever country or class they are born into, people with intellectual disabilities are frequently humiliated, abused and ignored.
