Yep, that’s right. We don’t talk about inclusivity in our house.
Instead, we practice it.
Inclusion can be such a buzz word in today’s society. We have such high expectations of inclusion to happen in our classrooms, and many criticize how and when it takes place. However, underneath all of this, we seem to have forgotten to practice inclusion at home.
