Joint European Union /Council of Europe Project
Regional Support for Inclusive Education in South East Europe
"Embracing Diversity Through Education"
Tirana, 6-7 November 2013
"Every child learns. Children learn in a safe and happy environment. Inclusive education is an integral part of school development. Every school, every teacher, every child, every parent is valued and supported. Diversity is recognized, appreciated and valued from everyone in the education system."
This paragraph depicts the vision of South East Europe for an education that embraces diversity. It is the summary of the discussions at the conference held in Tirana on 6-7 November 2013. Some 130 representatives joined the discussion, from Ministries of Education, Ministries of Social Welfare, schools, parents, experts, universities, civil society organisations and international organisations working in all aspects of education.
"Inclusive school is a school where:
every child is welcome,
every parent is involved,
every teacher is valued."
