Our quote of the episode
“If you don’t feel good about yourself, and you don’t feel included, you’re not going to learn. Inclusion is a way to feel good about oneself, which leads to children having a more productive day in their learning experiences and families are going to have a wonderful time coming in and out because they will feel represented.”
