Inclusive Education: Fighting School Segregation

Inclusive Education

Description: School segregation is still an unfortunate reality in Europe today. Its negative consequences affect in particular Roma children, children with disabilities, children with a migrant background and other children due to their social or personal circumstances. Many European member states have adopted important measures to build more inclusive education systems and to guarantee the right of all children to education without discrimination. In practice, however, authorities at national and local level do not always abide by their obligations and often yield to pressure from different sources, including from school administrations, teachers and other professionals and from families. This course aims at raising awareness of inclusive education both at the administrative level (School principals, head teachers, etc.) as well as promoting parental participation in the school.
