INCLUSIVE EDUCATION

Inclusive education was first brought to mind for students who require disability and / or special education. The aim was to involve these students in normal education processes. This definition has recently expanded and includes all groups that have a disadvantage in society (religious, ethnic and cultural minorities, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, girls, low-income families, people with disabilities, AIDS patients, etc.,) including an expression has been implicated.

In today's sense, inclusive education encompasses all children who have equal access to social, cultural, educational, vital activities and opportunities, with or without specific needs and / or disabilities, and the right to education with other peers.

Inclusive education is defined by UNESCO as “the process of responding to the different needs of learners by increasing their participation in education, culture and society and by reducing discrimination within the education system Kaps.

This process, in the light of a common vision that includes all the children of the learning age and the belief that educating all children is the responsibility of the states, covers the changes that should be made in terms of content, approach, structure and strategies.

All children are recognized as the basic condition of inclusive education by creating appropriate conditions within the general education system and by taking necessary measures.

Inclusive education allows all learners to be educated with their peers in the schools of their choice;

  • education policies,
  • teaching programs,
  • school culture,
  • teaching practices and
  • learning environments

differentiates learners to respond to different and varied learning needs.

This understanding assumes that all students can achieve the educational goals set for them if they have the opportunities and opportunities they need.

The inclusive education approach considers the differences between students and the different needs of the students as an opportunity not to be a problem but to enrich teaching.

In this respect, inclusive education defines as an innovative movement that naturally meets and supports the differences between learners.

For this reason, the inclusive education movement refers not only to technical or institutional change, but also to a philosophical change.
