Re-examining Issue of Inclusion in Education

Children with disability were included as early as 1968 in the National Policy on Education, but the rhetoric of integrated education has been ambivalently used to keep at bay the broader concept of inclusion. Apart from putting in context the meaning of inclusion in education of children with disability and suggesting some inclusive practices, this article examines the two Acts in the Indian context that have a bearing on education of children with disability, the Persons with Disabilities Act and the Right to Education Act.
