Infographic of Survey on Inclusiveness

I developed an infographic based on the data received from my survey on how inclusive are Irish Catholic Primary Schools. I’ll be publishing my thoughts in the coming days.

  1. I find this troublesome…85% consider Catholic schools to be inclusive, yet the majority of the other results indicate otherwise.

    “Inclusive education means that ALL students attend and are welcomed by their neighbourhood schools in age appropriate, regular classes and are supported to learn, contribute and participate in ALL aspects of the life in the school.”

    Schools are not inclusive just because they say they are. I have read many articles by people far more learned that I, about how well Catholic schools fulfill a commitment to inclusion. By the very definition of inclusion however, if even one child is not being supported to learn, contribute and participate in any aspect of the school day, they are being excluded and marginalised. This is not inclusion.

    • Thanks for the comment. I think the word they are looking for is tolerant. This certainly was the terminology that was used when I started teaching in 2002. It’s not the most palatable word but it is more accurate than inclusive. At best accommodations are made.
