An inclusive curriculum requires a team of commensurately qualified teachers to best support student learning.

This has an impact not only on academic achievement but also on the development of core competencies and the personality of students.

Improving self-esteem in the learning environment increases students’ motivation to learn, and character education supports students’ inclusive growth.
