Are excluded students any different from mainstream?

To the population of the world, I am here to speak to you about how excluded students are no different to mainstream students.


Some people have the idea that students that have been excluded from mainstream are different to mainstream kids. The kids out of mainstream benefit from being in smaller one to one surroundings. They learn better in that environment. They get better help than being in mainstream.


On the other hand, other people, like me, say they aren’t different to mainstream kids because people in mainstream have behavioural issues. Students that have been excluded are no different because we have feelings, we learn differently. We are all different in our own way. If we were all the same, the world would be a boring place. Everything would be so monotonous.

Face the facts people, everyone is unique, everyone is human, whether you’ve been excluded or not, whether they’re transgender, gay, part of the LGBTQ community or not, you’re you, it’s your life, non-one else’s. At the end of the day, you get an education, you’ve learnt something that day. We all go to sleep, we all eat, we all learn. Why does it have to be called “mainstream” for your education? At the end of the day we’re all different and different is good.
