The Role of School-Family Partnership in Implementing Inclusive Education in Romania
AbstractInclusive education plays an important part in the context of current Romanian education. Inclusive education means access to education for all children, irrespective of their characteristics, by observing and applying a model of environmental education, according to which every child has the right to be brought up within his own family and to attend the school that is best suited to his needs. To achieve this goal, all educational factors should be involved, so that effective cooperation between them might provide an appropriate educational environment. Inclusive education aims to continuously adapt education to the special learning requirements of children. Inclusive education is achieved by removing barriers to learning and ensuring attendance of all children vulnerable to exclusion and marginalization, through a strategic approach designed to meet the learning requirements of all children. A first requirement of inclusive education is to decrease and even to eliminate exclusion of children from the educational system, at least at the level of elementary education. Inclusive education based schools provide basic, accessible, high quality education meant for all children, whose purpose is to turn them into pupils and provide them with basic skills and abilities (Mara, 2009).
