Join PTA in Supporting Inclusive Schools Week

PTA joins more than 50 other organizations as a partner in Inclusive Schools Week – December 1-5, 2008. The theme for this year's activities is "Together We Learn Better: Inclusive Schools Benefit All Children."
Inclusive Schools Week is an annual event sponsored by the Inclusive Schools Network (ISN) at Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC). It is held each year during the first week in December. Since its inception in 2001, Inclusive Schools Week has celebrated the progress that schools have made in providing a supportive and quality education to an increasingly diverse student population, including students who are marginalized due to disability, gender, socio-economic status, cultural heritage, language preference and other factors. The week also provides an opportunity for educators, students and parents to discuss what needs to be done to ensure that their schools continue to improve their ability to successfully educate all children.
