The Right to Education: Breaking Down the Barriers

News

Following a very successful first run, on the 6th of June the second run of the 'The Right to Education: Breaking down the barriers' free online course will start!

This course was created by the University of Glasgow's Inclusive Education team and it explores how we can include those who are marginalised and excluded from education. Drawing on examples from Scottish schools and from our alumni across the world it explores what we can do to make classrooms, schools and learning environments more inclusive.

During the course we will  think about the Education for All agenda.  Did it develop more inclusive societies and schools or are young people with disabilities disproportionately denied their right to education?  We will consider the implications of Sustainable Development Goal 4 – ensuring we create inclusive, equitable and quality education and lifelong learning for all by 2030.  We will help teachers explore, discuss and challenge the ways in which EFA has impacted on education for those who are marginalised and excluded from learning. Through discussion and analysis of legislation, literature, reports and film teachers will explore the ideas behind inclusive practice and consider how an understanding of inclusion will result in teachers creating a more inclusive learning environment for all.
