Discrimination, bias, inequality, and inequity, are terms that are all too commonly associated with education for those obscured in the margins and excluded from the main. Herein, we attempt to chorus the voices that have remained in the shadowy discourses of inclusive education. Further, we fuse diverse sociological perspectives and examine points of friction, murmuration, and interplay. Through this, we endeavor to move beyond empty rhetoric and what has become the canonical assumptions of inclusive education. Instead, we turn to considerations of multiplicity; in doing so we take up arms at the intersections of the impact of neoliberalism and artificial intelligence, poverty and regional education, and finally the utilization of camouflage to hide the social realities of segregation. Through these narrative junctures, we find solace in the capacity to call out exclusion, irregularity, and oppression and complicate the underside of inclusion which scratches at common-sensical notions that inclusive education is a Right, right?
