Parents are the primary educators of their children. It is the job of schools to partner with parents to ensure their children receive the best education possible.
We hear that a lot, but what happens when our children struggle to learn? Does that mean they are limited to attending public schools with special education programs? No!
The Learning Support Network in the Diocese of San Diego is an online resource for Catholic schools and parents looking to make inclusive education possible for all families who desire their children to have a Catholic education. Catholic schools in particular are taking a hard look at their admissions and student support policies in the wake of Vatican II document Gravissimum Educationis (Oct. 1965). This Christian education mandate states in part that "all children, in virtue of their dignity as human persons, have an inalienable right to education, adapted to their ability." We believe this is a call for Catholic elementary and secondary schools to include all students, regardless of their physical and/or cognitive abilities.
