Calidad en la educación

QUIROGA, Marta  and  ARAVENA, Felipe. Chilean school principals’ response to public policies on inclusion. Calidad en la educación [online]. 2018, n.49, pp.82-111. ISSN 0718-4565.

Chile presents one of the most segregated educational systems in the world. Inclusion is an opportunity to reverse this dramatic educational scenario. The purpose of this study is to investigate necessary conditions in order to effectively implement inclusive educational practices in Chilean schools, from the perspective of seven school principals. This study, through the application of a mixed methodology, the concept mapping technique and a factorial analysis of the data, concludes that resources, personal attitudes and public policies are the three most important variables that influence the implementation of inclusive practices within schools. The results of this research contribute to the national debate with key information for policymakers, in order to analyze actions, which tend to mitigate resistance towards including others.
