In this video, Vanessa Japtha discusses the role that policy plays in inclusive education. She discusses how policies can promote inclusivity, and how these policies need to be reviewed in order to keep up to the changes in awareness and understanding of inclusivity. She discusses how key policies, such as the admissions policy, any language policies, the school's code of conduct, etc., and how to make these policies more inclusive to diverse student backgrounds and educational needs. She closes by discussing the role of poverty in creating new or exacerbating existing barriers to learning, and the need for school policies (which could include fee exemptions or feeding programmes) to address learner poverty to promote inclusivity.
