Key Message

Changing the role of specialist provision towards supporting inclusive education is closely related to ensuring the rights of all learners to high-quality inclusive education.

Key Principles – Supporting policy development and implementation for inclusive education

We learn best when we learn together.

Highlighting fundamental issues for education systems, the Key Principles series reflects the gradual shift in the Agency’s work over the past 25 years: a shift away from a narrow focus on learners’ special educational needs and special needs education as specific provision, towards extending and improving the quality of support for learning that is generally available to all learners.
