Inclusive Schools Week is celebrated annually in the first week of December by families, schools and organizations around the world. The District of Columbia defines inclusive schools as environments in which all children, regardless of ability, is welcomed and has an equal opportunity to receive high quality instruction.
Inclusive Schools Week highlights and celebrates the progress that schools have made with inclusive practices. The week provides an important opportunity for educators, students, and parents to discuss what else needs to be done in order to ensure that their schools continue to improve their ability to successfully educate all children.
To celebrate Inclusive Schools Week Advocates for Justice and Education, Inc. (AJE) is providing parents, educators and the community with resources on inclusion. These resources include: information on the components of inclusion, explains what inclusion is, provides common misconceptions about inclusive education and explains the rights of students to participate in sports and other afterschool activities.
