Inclusive Education--A Christian Perspective to an "Overlapping Consensus"
Pirner, Manfred L.
International Journal of Christianity & Education, v19 n3 p229-239 Nov 2015
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has triggered endeavours in many countries to implement inclusive education at public schools. A Christian interpretation that concentrates on the anthropogical themes of fragmentarity, fragility and complementarity offers valuable impulses to the public discourse on inclusive education, including for people with a secular or different religious world view. It can thus contribute to an "overlapping consensus" on inclusive education and help anchoring it in the very center of education and educational theory instead of just seeing it as one additional task of schools among others.
