Governor Dayton Proclaims December 5-9 Inclusive Schools Week
Educators recognize that each child is unique, learns differently, and, therefore, learns better if teaching is tailored to their abilities and interests. In continuing with Minnesota’s commitment to ensuring that all schools and classrooms are welcoming and capable of educating all Minnesota children, Governor Dayton has proclaimed December 5-9 Inclusive Schools Week.
“It is very important that every classroom is high performing and inclusive,” said Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius. Every child in Minnesota deserves access to a quality education that is reflective of the communities that we live in. I applaud Governor Dayton in recognizing this important effort.”
