This work has as its central theme a discussion of the “truth” of inclusion. Through our beliefs and actions we set a pathway for students in our schools. As educators and leaders we choose paths that can encourage or stifle access and opportunity for all students. Regardless of the path taken inclusion as a fundamental truth still exists and challenges us to explore what we bring to this educational endeavour. Given as a talk in June 2019 at the conference, Exploring Intersectionalities for Leadership and School Inclusion (Vancouver, BC), this work pushes us to examine who we are as individuals and community members within the framework of inclusive education.
