The inclusive education + logo of BubbleBooks
We like the sentence of Nelson Mandela: “The education is the most powerful weapon that we can use to change the world”.
If we frame the matter of the education in the context of the obligatory education, we celebrate that more and more people talk of “educational inclusion” or “inclusive education” because we trust that it is the best methodology to educate.
Why the best? Well because it better reflects and respects the reality just as it is: variable, with nuances, differences, particularities, expressive, mixed, unequal, with character and personality.
Just like this was understood by experts gathered in the forum of UNESCO of 1990 in Thailand, where this concept was formulated and highlighted during the Salamanca Declaration in 1994: the convenience of to give teaching to everybody, with and without special educational needs, in the same common educational system.
Moreover, it also resounds as a powerful echo a theory of the Príncipe de Asturias of Social Sciences Award of 2011, Howard Gardner. It is about the “multiple intelligences”, eight diverse ways of “intelligences” that determine different ways to know the world. This professor of the Harvard University considers absurd to pretend that all the pupils learn in the same way.
It would be ideal that, apart from trusting in the educational inclusion for its own qualities, sons and parents would enjoy this philosophy, in other words, the pleasure of get along with “the differences” for the richness that they provide. The singularities are as the palette of an artist. Shall learn the art of living including all the colours. BubbleBooks bets on it.
