Inclusion at DE

Inclusion at DE!

"Inclusion is an ongoing process, the purpose of which is to create an open and progress-oriented environment where each and every student takes an active part in their own education. The goal is that each child be seen, acknowledged and appreciated as a unique individual and thereby ensure their academic, personal and social development." 

(Copenhagen Municipality)

"Inclusive environments can be viewed as contexts, where everyone feels competent"
(Copenhagen Municipality)

- Inclusion sounds all well and good, and there is no reason to doubt that the governments concern about the quality of education is well founded. The number of young people with the social and academic skills needed to pursue a level of education beyond grammar school is in decline. The pronounced goal of the government is that 95% of children from any given birth year will finish some sort training or degree above the grammar school level.
