Culture Citizenship Participation: Perspectives from Latin America on Inclusive Education


TO-INN_bookcover_ENG 20190904aInclusive education means quality education for all, regardless of social and economic status, geographical location, ethnicity, gender, age, culture or language. Inclusive Education is one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 4), as set out by the United Nations; it is a shared responsibility of all countries.This book presents a wealth of experiences and reflections on Inclusive Education from the Latin American perspective. As a result of intense collaboration1 within a network of twenty- two universities in Latin America and Europe, it provides a documented testimony from different contexts, about different aspects of education and teacher training. It covers a broad spectrum of aspects, topics, insights and reflections on the current state of inclusive education and how this can be improved. It aims to critically reflect and inform the debate about inclusive education, linking the global aspects of globalization with local culture and practices.Written by authors from different countries and continents, the book addresses different dimensions in inclusive education, including educational inclusion, pedagogical innovation, information and communication technologies in education and the social dimensions. Its central question is how social inclusion can be really achieved and how coverage of education can be extended to reach the least favored social sectors.
