This article aims to analyze educational inclusion as an educational device that breaks with exclusionary practices and spaces in the educational system and the challenges that offer to pre-service teachers formation. First, the concept of inclusion from a contemporary perspective is examined, second, the risks of understanding it from the special education field are discussed, third, current restrictions to inclusion development in teachers formation programs are shown and fourth, three proposals for a new teacher that utilizes inclusion as a road to respond, accept, and celebrate diversity in our educational system are described.
