What People Are Saying


“It is hard to put into words the impact that MCIE has had on my school. I see the benefits every time I walk into one of the classrooms; our school is truly a community of learners where everyone is looked upon as integral parts of this community. This could not have been accomplished without all of the support and guidance that we received from MCIE.”

Rick Edwards
Former Principal and District Leader in Cecil County, Maryland

"Just so much to appreciate about MCIE. I think I take for granted that you folks do this outstanding work. You are all a reminder of what is possible, and I am so grateful for it."

Dr. Paula Kluth
National consultant

“...we connected with an expert in the field… the Maryland Coalition for Inclusive Education, who forever changed my educational philosophy and trajectory. I thought inclusion was about being in the same place with one another, but I now understand that it is much more than that. To truly be included, each person must feel a genuine sense of belonging and meaning fully participate with others.”

Dr. Kate Cavanaugh
Principal of Cherokee Elementary School, Lake Forest, Illinois
