As part of the sixth webinar, we shared with you our experiences and ideas on how to use the "21st Century Schools" program to create an inclusive environment in primary schools. We talked about inclusion and presented the various opportunities offered by strategies for developing critical thinking and problem solving in creating an inclusive learning environment. Also, the webinar had a very practical dimension thanks to the use of specific problem situations concerning children from marginalized groups and students with emotional, social and behavioral difficulties, in which we came to a solution together.

There were small technical issues at webinar 6, so a couple of questions arrived after we finished the live event. We wrote them down and got the answers from our coaches.
1. What is RE population?
Roma and Egyptian population.
2. Are special educators of different profiles and to what extent involved in creating an inclusive learning environment for RE population and students with disabilities?
This is a matter for the Ministry of Education, the Bureau of Education and the schools in question. In any case, teams of experts are necessary in order to respond well to the developmental and cognitive needs of a child or young person.
3. Do you follow up with children after primary school and how? Do you have information on the extent to which they continued to engage in these activities.
There are mechanisms in the system that enable the 'transition' from the primary to the secondary school system to be successful and for the child / young person to receive adequate service. Also, a question for the Ministry of Education, the Institute for Education and Schools.
