It refers to an attitude, believe and value system. So in this case, once this system has been adopted by a school, then it should drive all the decisions and actions by those people who have adopted it. It is a belief that schools embrace and educate all students and not just selecting those students who can be fit in that school. It is believed that all children are unique in their different ways and they have different talents. It is through inclusive learning that children are in a position to get good education and also attain the best practices in school. This can be well illustrated by cooperative learning. In this case, you find that students are in a position to learn with each other, and offer the necessary assistance to each other where possible. It is through this cooperation that students can be in a position to do well in most of their activities.

In this regard it is also expected to lower the cost of education to the parent and to the government since students will be able to use the same resources and amenities rather than providing each student with their own resources.
