Nordic examples for more inclusive schools
7 Oct 2022
What efforts are being made in Nordic schools to secure that children with disabilities have equal rights to education? At a webinar organized by VIVE and the Nordic Welfare Centre on 13 October, several examples will be presented.
At the webinar: Equal right to education – Inclusive schools and the organization of individual support on 13 October at 13.00–15.30, experiences and perspectives from Finland, Iceland and Norway will be presented and discussed. Focus lies on the primary school system; both ordinary and specialized schools.
There is a great variety between the Nordic countries in how support for people with disabilities is organized. This also applies to the school systems.
– It is important to discuss the topic in a Nordic perspective, because we have much to learn from each other. The Nordic countries do things differently, which can inspire development of practice and policies, says Jakob Trane Ibsen, chief research analyst at VIVE.
Keynote speakers at the webinar are:
- Juho Honkasilta, University of Helsinki: The state of inclusion in the state of inclusion? – The case of Finland
- Edda Óskarsdóttir, University of Iceland: Inclusive education in Icelandic compulsory education – status and prospect
- Øyvind Snipstad, Inland Norway University: Inclusive education in Norway: From inclusive policies to marginalising practices.
The webinar is held in English, and it will be text-translated.
