Abstract or Introduction
This paper will provide a comparative review regarding some aspects in inclusion policy and practice between Germany and England. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the differences among both countries, regarding their inclusion-policies, and to derive conclusions about what can be improved in either one. As a side effect of globalization, comparative education gains importance in the countries´ achievement to compete with one another on a global scale. It promotes the critical engagement with education systems without judgement or prejudice, while fostering an awareness of economic and political circumstances. Not being just an academic practice, it can be of use to improve education around the globe. One of the biggest uncertainties in the field of comparative education, are the different ways in which inclusion is defined and understood by different countries. Since the creation of the Salamanca Statement in 1994, 92 governments and 25 international organizations made a commitment to abolish segregated education and to enable children with disabilities to be part of the mainstream school-system. It is one of the most significant documents in that domain and provides the framework about how to realize the settled arrangements for all governments.
