Design Principles of Inclusion for Public Schools
MetadataShow full item record
Including children with disabilities in the public classroom is morally right; yet in the absence of appropriate support, it often results in a learning environment that is morally wrong. This thesis studies how to appropriately implement inclusive policies within a public school A new school typology is then proposed, which engages the medical and academic communities to collaborate together within an existing school on behalf of students with disabilities - in assessing them and preparing them individually for successful learning and meaningful inclusion among their peers. This new programme also provides training for teachers as they strive to effectively meet the needs of an increasingly diverse student body.
