OCHOA CERVANTES, Azucena. The type of participation promoted in schools is a constraint factor for inclusive education. Alteridad [online]. 2019, vol.14, n.2, pp.184-194. ISSN 1390-8642.

Several authors have shown that one of the barriers for learning and inclusion is the level of participation that is promoted within the school context, since through participation the conditions are created for the appreciation of diversity and, therefore, for the inclusion. However, in the school context, the participation experience to which students have access is limited. On this basis, a study was conducted with the objective of analyzing the type of participation promoted in secondary school. To achieve the objective, a questionnaire was applied to 539 middle school students from public schools in the metropolitan area of the city of Querétaro, Mexico. The results shown that although the school is the main area of participation that students recognize, their ideas regarding of their participation are limited to the issuance of an opinion that must be carried out in a specific way, which limits learning and inclusion.
