Why Inclusive Education?
In the current settings, Children with Disability are either not enrolled in regular schools or paucity of Inclusive Education system leads to drop out. And, once they are segregated from the mainstream it gets difficult to integrate at later stages. Inclusive Education is an effort to ensure Right to Education despite the special requirements or needs of children with disability.
