Education for All: Pathways Towards Increased Inclusion in the Early Years

Education for All: Pathways Towards Increased Inclusion in the Early Years

Inclusive education policies and practices improve learning for all children and lead to stronger communities, economies and societies as countries advance on their journeys to self-reliance. This is why the educational development community has increasingly prioritized inclusive education, reflected in the recent USAID education policy and the first ever DFID-hosted Global Disability Summit.

A shared set of best practices and evidence on how to include children with disabilities in mainstream classrooms is needed to improve the ability of all stakeholders, including host-country governments and local partners, to deliver meaningful and sustainable results.

Please join us to review current research and examine effective practices for inclusive education. Panelists will present inclusive education research and practices from Kenya, Malawi, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and Zambia. This will be followed by a moderated discussion that will focus on questions such as: What evidence do we need to develop a shared understanding of inclusive education best practices?

Registration: 9:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

Program: 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Panelists

Brent Elder, Assistant Professor, Rowan University

Eileen Dombrowski, Education Analyst, Early Childhood Development, RTI International

Maria Kett, Honorary Reader in Disability and International Development, UCL Institute of Epidemiology and Healthcare

Morgan Chitiyo, Professor and Department Chair, School of Education, Duquesne University
