Guidelines for Inclusion: Ensuring Access to Education for All

Via: Eldis
"This paper examines how excluded children are planned for in education. It provides guidelines and concepts for rendering National Education Plans / Education for All (EFA) more inclusive, with the objective of ensuring access and quality education for all learners. The guidelines are intended to provide information and awareness and to be a policy tool for revising and formulating EFA plans."

"The paper is divided into three main parts: it provides a theoretical framework which defines inclusion and explains how it is founded in a human rights approach and how it relates to factors such as quality and cost-effectiveness; it looks at more practical changes at the school level by outlining the key elements in the shift towards inclusion with a particular focus on the key players including teachers, parents and educational policymakers as well as curricula; and the final section presents tools for policymakers and educational planners for hands-on analysis of education plans. These include key questions to consider at the level of policy and legislation before engaging in an in-depth analysis of the educational plans and checklist questions from the Index for Inclusive Schooling indicators to help facilitate the process of identifying gaps and corresponding strategies to address these gaps and move towards inclusion."
