The European Agency for Special Needs and Inclusive Education is a network of 31 European countries. Sweden is represented by the National Agency for Special Needs Education and Schools, SPSM. The network works to develop collaboration in the field of educational and to improve quality of special needs education in Europe.
Member countries share the vision for inclusive education systems, that all students of all ages have the right to meaningful, high-quality educational opportunities in their local community, together with their friends and peers. Inclusive education is seen as a democratic process where quality in education for all students is central. The goal is to improve educational policy and teaching based on the needs of students.
