Scaling the impact of Inclusive Post-secondary Education
Inclusive post-secondary education provides a vision of an inclusive life path after graduation. In this session, we will share how the lessons learned over the last 20 years of facilitating inclusion at the post-secondary level can help support students and families to advocate for quality inclusive education in high school.
After this session participants will:
- Be familiar with the guiding principles and practice of inclusive post-secondary education
- Understand how the vision for post-secondary education can support advocacy and relationship building through the high school years
- Have practical actions they can take back to support their own advocacy
The BC Initiative for Inclusive Post-secondary Education (Steps Forward) is on Twitter @STEPSForwardBC
