Inclusive culture in schools transforms communities
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Can changing how we address differences in the classroom raise the bar for every student while creating a more compassionate, inclusive culture better suited to complex problem solving in the world? In this emotional talk, education leader Heidi Heissenbuttel explores the how and why of a new school model based on inclusivity in the classroom.
As an education leader for nearly three decades and a parent for two, Heidi has been a fervent advocate within schools as well as the broader community of parents and families to ensure children’s learning strengths are addressed, and, more importantly, that they feel empowered to communicate within the educational system for themselves and others.
