In finishing the Schools For Inclusion project, we would like to share some of the suggestions and modifications that could be taken into consideration in the future to enhance the efficiency of the good practices, values education and inclusion in secondary schools. These suggestions include the following:
- Creating a transparent policy framework at the national or regional level that highlights the importance of values education and inclusion in secondary schools.
- Move beyond the teacher-centered approach and adopt a more student-centered approach in the classroom.
- Take steps to promote an inclusive school culture that recognizes and celebrates diversity.
- Emphasize parent and community involvement in the school by implementing more workshops and training, engagement events and partnerships with community organizations.
- Create more support services and invest in the individual needs of students.
- Strengthen the evaluation and monitoring of students by establishing clear objectives and indicators that can be used to track and analyze student progress.
- Encourage collaboration among schools and educational stakeholders through strategies such as participating in online platforms to share success stories and facilitate communication, creating partnerships with external organizations such as universities or non-profits, participating in projects with other schools and taking part in networking opportunities like workshops and teacher conferences.
We believe that by embracing these general conclusions, secondary schools can facilitate the creation of inclusive school environments and a student population that has a strong moral compass, sense of belonging, and that share important values such as empathy, tolerance and responsibility.
