Analysis of the situation in Portugal

In examining legislation related to education in values and social inclusion in schools, the project organization Gil Eanes School Consortium found that in Portugal there is basic legislation that consecrates the rights of migrants and ethnic minorities can be found in the Law 1/2005, which outlines the process for applying for asylum in the country and defines the rights and obligations of asylum seekers and recognized refugees. Similarly, legislation regarding inclusive education consists in three primary laws: Law No. 1/2005, Decree-Law No. 54/2018 and Decree-Law No. 55/2018, all of which are aimed at promoting a more inclusive and equitable educational system in Portugal, focusing specifically on equal access to education despite cultural, religious or ethnic backgrounds. Teachers are also required to have training on subjects related to social inclusion. 

Furthermore, education in values in Portugal is promoted through the National Strategy for Education for Citizenship, which requires schools to provide mandatory citizenship education, including topics such as values. 

At the local level, the Gil Eanes School Consortium in Lagos has also been working towards more inclusive schools through the promotion of various policies and initiatives based on the principles of equality, non-discrimination, and respect for individual differences in hopes of providing equal educational access to all.
