Each Belongs: The Remarkable Story of the First School System to Move to Inclusion
Hansen, Jim
Inclusion Press
The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board has just celebrated 30 Years of Fully Inclusive Education for All. Their mission statement: "EACH BELONGS". This remarkable book by Jim Hansen collects the history--including an extensive collection of documents and letters from teachers and families--that tell the stories of the struggles from the inside over 30 years. For anyone who ever has the thought, "It's a great idea, but let's be realistic," this is an important book. Hamilton is a steel town. It is a collage of immigrant communities. It isn't wealthy. They had no extra funds. They believed it was possible--and important and they just did it. Their secret is extra love and caring for all.
