Dr. Marc Arnal, retired dean of Campus St. Jeans-University of Alberta, says a blue-ribbon panel on inclusive education in Alberta schools has wrapped up and has some recommendations.
Arnal says they recommend the province provide immediate, targeted, substantial and sustained funding for inclusive education.
Arnal says the government needs to help with the issue.
He says what's missing is a mechanism for planning and for bringing together all the people who are partners in education around the question of inclusion.
He says the government has to engage the various players in a productive and meaningful dialogue.
