Summary Annotation Every generation has sought to make teaching and learning more inclusive and equitable, but pesky questions always remain, such as, how can teaching and learning be conducted in ways that satisfies and respects everyone? What are the parameters of an inclusive pedagogy? Who defines its principles? How should these principles be taught and by whom? And by what authority shall they be grounded? These types of thorny questions occupy the essence of educators and the authors of this book. This book is about teachers, educators, and topics related to inclusion. Teachers and educators have a lot to know, therefore the topics are broad and relevant to the times. What should teachers know about special needs, religion and spirituality, Aboriginality, the environment, tolerance, and school choice? Although teachers have knowledge of their subject matter, knowledge alone is not sufficient. They must know and understand how people learn. A teacher must also care deeply about who they teach. And this ""teacher knowledge"" grows and changes over time as teachers become more experienced, informed, skilled, and wiser. At the same time no teacher preparation will be sufficient because there will always be discussions that were never had and knowledge that was never shared. Time has its costs and there is only so much a formal education can prepare someone. This book helps to satisfy a cavity in learning for teachers and educators in general. ""Different perspectives in education are necessary, not to reach some common synthesis, but to make our different 'faith' commitments apparent, especially to those who imagine they represent Reason, pure and simple. This book makes the issues clearer than we've seen them before.""--C. John Sommerville, Emeritus, University of Florida Matthew Etherington is an Associate Professor of Education at Trinity Western University, Langley, British Columbia. He is the director of the Institute of Indigenous Issues and Perspectives.
