Episode 081: What does inclusion really mean in a Catholic school?

One of my biggest bug bears is when a primary school calls itself inclusive. For one, in Ireland, it is impossible to be fully inclusive because schools are completely reliant on government funding and the allocation of resources. For example over 90% of schools in a self-assessed survey revealed that they didn’t have enough resources to support children with additional needs. Hardly inclusive but hardly their fault. However, you'd be surprised how many religious schools call themselves inclusive. In fact, if you work in one, you've probably done it. Join me as I explain why denominational schools can't call themselves inclusive.
