When speaking of an inclusive school, it is frequently stated that it is one that children with special needs attend along with ‘typically developing’ students. But should an inclusive school stand for just this? What about schools where there are no children with special needs that also need to be inclusive? Let us ask ourselves: does every child in the school get the turn to conduct the morning assembly? Is there an opportunity for every child to speak up in class? Do boys and girls share the responsibility for decorating the classroom equally? Most of us will respond with a ‘no’ to this. If we all work together, we can address many of these concerns and make our schools inclusive in the real sense.
