Inclusive education brings all students together in one classroom and community, regardless of their strengths or weaknesses in any area, and seeks to maximize the potential of all students. Inclusion is an effort to make sure that diverse learners – those with disabilities, different languages and cultures, different homes and family lives, different interests and ways of learning – are exposed to teaching strategies that reach them as individual learners. Inclusive schools ask teachers to provide appropriate individualized supports and services to all students without the stigmatization that comes with separation. Teachers in inclusive classrooms vary their styles to enhance learning for all students.

  

By teaching children to welcome others into their worlds, the principles of inclusion can help foster a greater sense of cooperation and empathy in the next generation.
