10 Ways to Promote Inclusion in Schools – Inside Inclusive Solutions
Experienced educational psychologist Colin Newton of Inclusive Solutions offers his 10 “ingredients” for an inclusive school. If you follow this recipe for inclusion, then your school will be in a much better position to truly include the most marginalised and difficult to include young people.
Traditionally, schools have been quick to exclude young people that they deem as “difficult”. This can be because of uncontrollable behaviour, unstable mental health, or simply being disabled and the school feels unequipped to deal with the young person. Colins vision for inclusion completely flips that idea on its head and focuses on radically including these young people by meeting their needs in a wholesome and realistic way.
