This clip is from the bonus footage of You’re Going to Love This Kid DVD and Professional Development Package. The footage includes a series of 10 questions about inclusion answered by administrators, teachers, and parents.
This is a question about “inclusion for all” and it is being answered by John Price, the former principal of John J. Audubon School in Chicago. John is talking about how inclusive schools can provide opportunities for teachers to educate learners about their individual differences. This, Price maintains, makes all students savvier about their abilities, gifts, and their needs. This won’t happen simply by educating students with and without disabilities together, however. As Price points out, teachers have to be explicit in their support of inclusion and their conversations about it.
