Seven Pillars of Support for Inclusive Education: Moving from "Why?" to "How?"
Loreman, Tim
International Journal of Whole Schooling, v3 n2 p22-38 Sep 2007
This paper discusses the creation of essential conditions in schools and school jurisdictions in order to support the inclusion of the diverse range of learning preferences and needs found in today's classrooms. In order for inclusion to be successful educators need to work towards an educational climate and set of practices which include the adoption of positive attitudes; supportive policy and leadership; school and classroom processes grounded in research-based practice; flexible curriculum and pedagogy; community involvement; meaningful reflection, and; necessary training and resources.
