Lou interviews Sarah Humphreys from Inclusive Schools Australia. Sarah has an uncanny way of just making inclusive education to be so black and white and easy to implement. She would argue, that's because it is! She talks about the "50 Shades of Grey" around non-inclusion and how to avoid that. Sarah accurately and simply describes Universal Design for Learning and how universally designing anything will benefit the whole population. Sarah also explains the problem with alternative curriculums like LifeSkills in NSW and Ables in Victoria. Lots of practical advice and reassurance that us advocating for inclusion is an aspiration that we should hold on to tightly.
You can experience Sarah's wisdom at the upcoming Illume Australian Inclusive Schooling Conference on 12th and 13th of May.
