In this second webinar on the topic of inclusive education, co-hosts Dan Beerens, CACE Fellow, and Elizabeth Lucas Dombrowski, executive director of CLC Network, explore biblical support for, and practical realities involved with, implementing inclusive education in Christian schools. They are joined by two school administrator panelists, Brian Koetje and Carolyn Beall, who share their respective joys and challenges at each of their schools related to vision, funding, services offered, and overall lessons learned. Questions from webinar attendees are discussed and specific resources for schools and churches considering inclusive education are suggested.
