Making It Logical: Implementation of Inclusive Education Using a Logic Model Framework
Stegemann, Kim Calder; Jaciw, Andrew P.
Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, v16 n1 p3-18 2018
Educational inclusion of children with special learning needs is a philosophy and movement with an international presence. Though Canada is a leader in educational inclusion, many would claim that our public educational systems have not yet fully realized the dream of inclusive education. As other countries have noted, making full-fledged changes in systems can be difficult without a strategic plan of action that clearly articulates the stages of implementation, and without an agreed upon framework for planning, putting into action, and measuring the success. In this paper, we introduce the logic model framework for describing the process of creating inclusive educational environments. Logic models focus on implementation of a program, from start to end, making explicit the key assumptions on which the process is based, and help to identify where implementation may be breaking down. We create a generic logic model for the implementation of inclusive education, based on the documents from two Canadian provinces.
