Global Concerns and Local Realities: The "Making Education Inclusive" Conference in Johannesburg
Walton, Elizabeth
Intervention in School and Clinic, v50 n3 p173-177 Jan 2015
Inclusive education is a global phenomenon expressed differently in various countries, and different contextual realities support or constrain the process of making education more inclusive. This column reports on an international conference on inclusive education in Johannesburg, South Africa, which provided the opportunity for delegates to share research on dismantling educational exclusion and enabling inclusion. An analysis of conference abstracts reveals five concerns in making education inclusive that are shared across the developing and developed world. These are: students who experience difficulties, listening to understand inclusion and exclusion, teacher education for inclusive education, research issues in inclusive education, and systemwide implementation and evaluation.
