Embracing Inclusive Teacher Education
Moran, Anne
European Journal of Teacher Education, v30 n2 p119-134 May 2007
This paper examines the extent to which initial teacher education (ITE) programmes contribute to the development of inclusive attitudes, values and practices. Inclusive education is the entitlement of all children and young people to quality education, irrespective of their differences or dispositions. It is about embracing educational values of equity, diversity and social justice. The data which underpins this paper was obtained through research commissioned by the Department of Education (DE) Northern Ireland (NI) which sought to identify existing practices that increased the motivation, participation and achievement of all pupils of school age with special educational needs (Moran & Abbott, 2006). Head teachers' and Special Educational Needs Coordinators' (SENCOs) views were sought on the effectiveness of ITE programmes in preparing student teachers to work in inclusive school settings.
