INCLUSIVE EDUCATION: THE ROAD TO EDUCATION FOR ALL By Ismail Thamarasseri

Abstract

All are born equal with some limitations and with the help of inclusion be able to actively participate as equal citizens in all aspects of society and community life. Inclusive Education denotes that all children irrespective of their strengths and weaknesses will be part of the mainstream education. The feeling of belongingness among all community members and other functionaries is developed through inclusive education. A dominant problem in the disability field is the lack of access to education for both children and adults with disabilities. As education is a fundamental right for all, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and protected through various international conventions, this is a very serious problem. In a majority of countries, there is a dramatic difference in the educational opportunities provided for disabled children and those provided for non-disabled children. It will simply not be possible to realize the goal of Education for All if we do not achieve a complete change in the situation.

Keywords: Inclusive education, Inclusion, Inclusive democracy, Special education, Education for all.
