Inclusion needs a different school culture
Carrington, Suzanne B. (1999) Inclusion needs a different school culture. International Journal of Inclusive Education, 3(3), pp. 257-268.
Teachers' beliefs and values are affecting the emerging organizational paradigm called inclusive education. A social constructivist perspective on teachers' beliefs acknowledges that teachers have their ideals and this knowledge influences their actions in the implementation of inclusive schooling. This happens within a social and cultural context of the school and the community. This paper addresses a critical aspect of the changes needed for the development of inclusive schooling and the associated professional development for teachers.
