This discussion is based on your reading of Chapter 3 of your text, Inclusion and Multidisciplinary Collaboration in Early Childhood and Elementary Years. In this chapter, you learned about evidence-based inclusive schools, and about the importance of diversity, acceptance and belonging. These are buzz words today.
- In schools today, how would the discussion (and handling) of “diversity, acceptance and belonging” be different than in schools in the year 1970?
- If you were a parent in 1970, what challenges might you face addressing an issue of “diversity, acceptance and belonging” with the school administrators that impacted your child’s schooling?
