Psalm 139 reads:
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.... Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
We know from scripture that each person is an image - bearer of God , created by God and loved by God.
Studies show that 20-25% of the population has a disability. But data suggests that up to 70% of Christ-centered schools will not enroll children with special education needs. This prevents the youngest members of our faith community from learning to know their Creator through Christ-centered education.
1 Corinthians 12 states that we are all part of the same body.
“The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!...But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.”
Children are part of the body of Christ, just like adults. But many Christ-centered schools have missed out on the blessings of having a complete student body. All Belong can help your school fix this problem.
"Programs" typically serve only a small sliver of the population. That's why we don't provide one. Inclusive education is a way to structure your support services so that you can respond to all needs. And it solves the problem.
We know that education is challenging, especially right now. But here’s the truth:
When you create a system of inclusive education, it becomes easier to meet the needs of all students.
“We envision a world where every student with a disability is known, needed, and experiences belonging in their Christ-centered school”
