“It is important that children believe they can make a difference. Classrooms that are inclusive work to empower all children to improve their own situations and those of their classmates. Students who feel powerful and effective in grade school are far more likely to become adults who believe they can make a difference…The message in these classrooms are consistent – we are a community, we are all in this together we will take responsibility for one another, and we won’t abandon people because of their differences of difficulties.”
– Mara Sapon-Shevin in Curriculum Considerations in Inclusive Classrooms: Facilitating Learning for All Students
