Towards inclusion in education: status, trends and challenges: the UNESCO Salamanca Statement 25 years on
The publication looks at the past, present and future since Salamanca to guide the further development of inclusive national policies and practices. It explains the way that confusion regarding what is meant by key terms such as inclusion and equity has often made progress difficult. It also shows how more recent international policy documents have helped to bring greater clarity to discussions of these concepts. The publication addresses the following questions:
How can we advance legislation, policies, programs and practices that ensure inclusion and equity in education? • What actions must governments take to translate principles into practice in order to ensure inclusive learning environments? • What recommendations can help to foster inclusion and equity in education?
