    Abstract

    This article seeks to explore how teachers develop tolerance and respect within an inclusive school
    in Northern Ireland. Drawing on interviews and observation of 18 teachers, it will be shown that
    teachers’ own personal values and assumptions exert a defining influence on the school ethos. It will
    be argued that if teachers are not accorded the time and space to develop an understanding
    of their own values and beliefs then there is the potential for schools to simply reinforce the psychological
    barriers which sustain division.
