Chalk Talk: The Value of Inclusivity in Education
In the past, students of varying ability levels were segregated and grouped together to receive instruction. It is now understood that this practice is not beneficial for students, whether they are of high or low academic, cognitive or physical functioning. Inclusive classrooms facilitate better learning regardless of ability level – with appropriate support from teachers, students of high and low ability levels can work together and benefit from one another’s contributions. In addition to academic benefits, inclusivity promotes well-being and self-esteem for all students and promotes a sense of community and togetherness. Lastly, inclusive classrooms provide students with a firsthand experience of equal rights and equal worth. Through classroom interactions with students different from themselves, students gain valuable insight into what it means to be tolerant, aware and sensitive to the diversity around them.
