‘Tis the season for equality and education! The 13th Annual Inclusive Schools Week, sponsored by Inclusive School Networks, is celebrated December 2-6 in classrooms, school, and communities throughout the world. As the year comes to a close, take some time to learn more about how you can help support children with disabilities.
This special event supports the progress and planning of educational inclusion within schools, and encourages quality education to all students, including those who are marginalized due to disability, gender, ethnicity, geography and language. Following the journey from “Awareness to Action,” schools celebrate this week by purchasing Celebration Kits which include tools to help meet the needs of children with disabilities and diverse backgrounds through inclusive educational practices.
Although this event occurs during this week, Inclusive Schools Network offers materials to schools and communities that they could use year-round to promote awareness and the importance of inclusive education.
As a charity specializing in showing people how we are all more alike than different, Just Like You Films is proud to support the Inclusive Schools Week cause. View our video below on Down Syndrome to learn more!
