Friday Five: Five Quotes That Made Me Think This Week

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
~ Albert Einstein ~

"Inclusion is when you don't have to think about accessibility and accomodations.  They are already there!"
~ unknown source ~

"Integration and Inclusion are not the same, although they are very closely linked. Integration sets out to ensure that the immigrant fits in, speaks the language, obeys the law, works, pays taxes and votes. Inclusion goes a step further, where the immigrant is an active partner in shaping and changing institutions and society. Think of one as participation, the other as ownership. In integration, the onus is for the greater part on the immigrant. Whilst integration asks a great deal of the migrant, inclusion asks the host society to change and shift. Neither integration nor inclusion can happen accidentally or wishfully, they require the discipline of intentions, instruments and investments." 
 
“Disability is not a brave struggle or ‘courage in the face of adversity. Disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live.”
~ Neil Marcus ~

The kids in our classroom are infinitely more significant than the subject matter we teach.
~ Meladee McCarty ~
