During the European Parliament Hearing the Agency organised in 2011, the young delegates discussed rights: the right to quality of education, to choice and to equality and respect. They stated that inclusive education is not just about being together in the same place, but about having friends and good relationships with their peers.
They raised the point that inclusive education is beneficial for all: it creates the opportunity to learn and share experiences. They emphasised the important role to be played by teachers and their peers and highlighted that inclusive education is the first step in being full members of society.
The young people’s views have been summarised in the hearing report.
