Inclusive Education Festival starts this week

There is still a long way to go to make sure children and young people with additional needs are included in their local schools and communities. So, NDTi is planning an online Inclusive Education Festival. We will be showcasing great stories where inclusion really works to learn from each other and to try and build a more inclusive society for all children and young people.
