Inclusion from the pupils' point of view

Dear Sir or Madam,

Young people who demonstrate for their future or any future at all – the "Fridays for Future" protests show that the young generation has something to say. Also important is the news from pupils with and without disabilities in the German movie "The Children of Utopia". We asked what that is. Perhaps the topic, inclusive education, will be given the attention it deserves by 15 May at the latest. So that pupils with disabilities also have a future.

Have an inclusive week,

Anne Hofmann

Inclusive education: "Children of Utopia" creates new perspectives

We asked ...

The debate about inclusive education is stalling and generally doesn’t even let those who are most affected have their say: students both with and without disabilities. The German movie "Children of Utopia" ("Die Kinder der Utopie") wants to change all that. That's why it will be screened in several movie theaters on May 15 as part of a nationwide campaign event – followed by panel discussions.

A long way and many photo shoots later, her journey is not yet over, but the dreamer and optimist wants to make the world a better place. Who helped her on her way and how she wants to help others, she tells us at REHACARE.com.
