O re-inventar da inclusão: Os desafios da diferença no processo de ensinar e aprender

Author: Sílvia Ester Orrú

Education is a fundamental right of the citizen. To safeguard this right, laws were made for students with disabilities to have access and retention in schools. In this movement it received the name of inclusion. However, despite the established laws, many students experience a pseudo inclusion, since, although they have physical access to the school, the treatment promotes the feeling of non-existent group membership. This book aims to present the concept of «minor inclusion» inspired by the readings of «Kafka, for a minor literature» by Deleuze and Guattari. Interviews were conducted with a school principal and with a teacher, as well as a conversation circle with a first-year children’s class. They also interviewed a judge and a former detainee, a Syrian immigrant, a woman with multiple sclerosis, a girl with Down syndrome and the mother of a child with autism. As a result, experiments were presented that demonstrate inclusion as part of the educational philosophy and the life of the school and social community of those involved. Finally, the minor inclusion is conceptualized as the one that occurs in the difference that is different and without the legal imposition as its motivation.
