ISN Partner: Disability Equality in Education

Inclusive Schools Network is pleased to partner with Disability Equality in Education. Read below to learn more about this organization and the resources they offer.

The culture of silence ends. The conversation starts here.

Our Mission is to show all students  that disability is a powerful identity and a natural part of the human experience. Empower students to work toward equality in their communities!

What is Disability Comprehensive Education and Why is it important?

  • Encourages students to think critically about disability using experiential and fun lessons
  • Presents disability information from the perspective of the disability community.
  • Interdisciplinary lessons (social studies, math, ELA, etc.) so they can be used all year long and during Inclusive Schools Week!
  • Reinforces the idea that disability is a natural part of human diversity that should be respected and celebrated.
  • Encourages allyship for non-disabled students
  • Our educational resources promote the idea that we are all on the same playing field, disabled or not. A society is only strong if we see everyone has value.
