Inclusive Education

Inclusive education is a system of education in which children with diverse needs and different abilities are enrolled in regular schools and are provided with equitable learning opportunities based on their specific needs. It is based on the premise that all school children in a given community should learn together regardless of their socio economic backgrounds, gender, impairments and different abilities. Inclusive education acknowledges that all children have the ability to learn, recognises that childrens’ learning abilities vary, provides space for learning and develops educational methods and teaching aids to meet the educational needs of all children. Schools recognize and take into account the diverse needs of children and barriers faced by their learners, adapt to different styles and rhythms of learning and provides quality education through the appropriate use of resources, entitlements, school organisation, study plans as well as partnership with the community. read more

In the News

Inclusion is the fruit of a long term investment. It requires tremendous patience, hard work, commitment and faith in the child concerned. Our society hasn’t internalized the idea of inclusion and the task can be very challenging and sometimes discouraging. Less than 50% of the students we have included have remained in the mainstream. Peer pressure, competitive academics, and poor infrastructure and resources are some reasons why children with disability are unable to cope in mainstream schools. However, parents have the right to change this and insist on inclusive education for their child. Make sure special schools are the last resort and not your only hope.
