(Fredericton, NB) – End Exclusion. That’s the goal of the New Brunswick Association for Community Living (NBACL): to end exclusion for New Brunswickers who have an intellectual or developmental disability, and build a strong, inclusive society where everyone belongs. One of the cornerstones of this goal is inclusive education, from early learning right through to post-secondary – and inclusive education is based on the values, work and effort of educators dedicated to the belief that everyone has the right to belong.
The Canadian Association for Community Living (CACL) announced seven of the best “exclusion busters” New Brunswick’s educational community has to offer at the 2018 National Inclusive Education Awards ceremony at Government House on February 8. The event, organized by NBACL on behalf of CACL, is the focal point for celebrations marking National Inclusive Education Month.
The seven recipients of this year’s awards represent the continuum of inclusion throughout the educational cycle: the owner-director of several early learning and child care centres; a Grade Two teacher; a teacher and teaching team at the K to 2 level; a K to 5 resource teacher; the entire staff at a K to 8 school; a Resource and Methods high school teacher; and an instructor with the New Brunswick Community College.
