An inclusive classroom is made up of many different learners with unique needs and abilities, that want to feel they belong regardless of their identity, learning preferences, or skills.
According to the National Center for Educational Statistics,15% of all U.S. public school students receive special education services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Approximately 10% of all public-school students are English as a second language (ESL) learners. Combined, these students represent 25% of all the students in public schools.
To create an equitable learning environment, requires strategies and tools that give all learners access to materials and allow all student voices to be heard. At Microsoft, we provide educators tools that help accommodate all students’ unique needs and abilities.
