Inclusive education is about including all children to participate in the classroom. An education, without discrimination. Children with disabilities (CwDs) around the world are among the largest groups excluded irom mainstream education. In India, there are about 2 million children with disabilities as per the 201 I census. The majority of these children are living without any access to formal education. There are many national and intemational instruments, frameworks, laws, and policies that provide people with disabilities the Right to Education, yet we are not able to provide accessible, affordable, and appropriate education to our children with disabilities. Some of the barriers include difficulty in communication,
inaccessible infrastructure, transport and learning resources, non-inclusive and inappropriate curriculum and assessment, etc. The new ‘National Education Poticy, 2020’ discusses inclusivity, experiential learning. and progressive mediums of assessments. However, with large scale programs such as the Sarva Siksha Abhiyan, 2007, and the Samagra Siksha Abhiyan, 2018, their implementation and delivery becomes a big challenge. Hence, the focus of the Pratham is on the betterment and improvement of implementation and delivery of services on the field for all children. We believe that building awareness about such services that advocate for inclusive education is crucial to take action and deliver results.
