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

Who helped her on her way and how she wants to help others, she tells us at
