During this seminar I will first introduce myself and briefly present the context (Ontario, Canada) in which I conducted most of the research projects that will be discussed in the second part of the seminar. The first research project is about better understanding what inclusion means to children in the daily life of classroom. I will then discuss a project about school relations with parents in a homework club run by immigrant parents. I will then explain an ongoing international project that I conduct with several colleagues from different countries which seeks to understand how individualized educations plans are understood and used by school personnel. Finally I will say a few words about the Equity Knowledge network I am part of. The seminar will be an opportunity to draw some comparisons between our respective national contexts and develop eventual collaborations.
