Inclusive education in India – Concept, need and challenges
Dr. Suresh Kumar
It is an established fact that inclusive education is entirely a new approach to educate the children who are disable and face difficulties to learn in comparison to normal ones under the same roof. In this approach, all students are brought together in one classroom and community, regardless of their strengths or weaknesses in any area, and seek to maximize the potential of all students. The present approach is generally regarded as the most effective way to promote an inclusive and tolerant society. It has been observed that 73 million children of primary school age were out of school in 2010, down from a high of over 110 million out-of-school children in the mid-1990s, according to new estimates by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS). Today, we are facing a number of problems regarding the needs and challenges for achieving the goal of inclusive education? How will an inclusive environment meet the needs of children with disabilities? How quality education can be effectively and efficiently delivered for all children?
