The Parents for Inclusion Alliance
We are a voluntary association of parents who believe in the meaningfulness, utility and real-life benefits of inclusive education.
We believe it has an irreplaceable role in preparing all children for adult life.
We are convinced that efforts to educate children together based on their individual needs so that they can best fulfill their potential, is an approach that is consistent not only with the goals of modern pedagogy but also with the needs of an advanced humane society.
How we work
The Parents for Inclusion Alliance was founded in 2015 as an independent platform supported by Open Society Fund Prague, the Czech Society for Inclusive Education (COSIV) and other organizations.
The Alliance’s activities are managed by a coordinating committee in which parents and representatives from organizations work with disadvantaged or disabled people, regardless of the nature of their disability. The Alliance is also open to those who advocate for the interests of the socially or culturally disadvantaged as well as for gifted children.
We will be pleased if you are interested in joining us to promote our common vision of inclusive education together!
