“People are either included or excluded. One cannot be a little bit pregnant or a little bit included (like the myth of "inclusive" recess or lunch). One is either "in" or "out". One either belongs or doesn't belong. If we exclude people, we are programming them for the fight of their lives - to get in and to belong.”
--- Marsha Forest & Jack Pearpoint
"Real inclusion only comes when communities, programs and individuals look beyond a person’s disabilities and see their right to belong.”
--- Loretta Butler-Turner
"Schools that include everyone promote harmony along with an appreciation for the differences that mark us individually and culturally. Segregation fosters unfamiliarity, distrust and disrespect, breeding grounds for harassment and bullying – among kids and countries."
