Helpdesk Report: Inclusive and Effective Schools



Identify the characteristics and practices of schools that are both inclusive and effective in terms of pupil attainment.


It was difficult to find research where effectiveness in terms of attainment was reported. The goal of inclusive education often seems to be inclusion itself or attendance rather than completion or graded learning outcomes. The report presents research from Lao, Romania and the UK.
