Inclusive Education (In The Context Of The Differently Able) Is Not An Alternative But Inevitability

Inclusive Education (In The Context Of The Differently Able) Is Not An Alternative But Inevitability

A paragraph from Desiderata says, “You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here”. The paragraph is in consonance with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) Salamanca statement, which calls for the accommodation of all children, regardless of their physical, intellectual or emotional state in ordinary school.

Inclusive education refers to managing the development, evaluation and maintenance of policy, programmes and systems for learners with special learning needs- specifically in schools. Why is this necessary?

Every child has a different set of talents and abilities. Some are blessed with a perfectly able mind and body while others are not. Hence, it is necessary for every child to cooperate with each other and advance together as one on the path of progress. This shall not only help the differently able to lead a normal life but also help the perfectly abled student to understand the other and gradually bring him up to par, also attaining emotional maturity in the process.

By treading this path student’s talents will not go unseen or wasted. If education is truly made an inalienable right, there will be both a quantitative and qualitative difference in the manpower available for the employment sector.

The society needs to change its mindset and implement the mainstreaming of schools with an open mind. After all, if human resource needs to reach the pinnacle of its limitless potential, then ‘Inclusive Education’ is not an alternative but inevitability.
