About Inclusion

Inclusion is a right for all children and youngster, not only in Education, in schools, but in all domains of the society. It is not a question of an updated fashion in Education. Acknowledging Inclusion in Education means to acknowledge also “Education for All” as a right consigned in the Universal Human Rights Declaration (UN, 1948), in the Children’s Rights Convention (UN, 1959) and in Convention on Rights of the Person with Disabilities (UN, 2006).

Nowadays, this is part of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 of the United Nations, based on four pillars: PEOPLE, PLANET, PEACE, and PROSPERITY. The goal related with Education is the 4th goal, which plays an essential role and aims to ensure an inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all (UNESCO, 2017).
