Promoting community involvement: The key to inclusive education
Author(s): Krishan Kumar
Abstract: UNESCO Regional Workshop on Inclusive Education ‘ Getting All Children into School and Helping them Learn, in a thematic group session (on Local Capacity Building and Community Development), participants were asked to write on a card what “community” means. All communities are as much places of learning as schools. Children often spend more time at home and with their communities than in school. Sometimes, however, children have to leave home and stay in residential boarding schools away from their communities due to poor access and segregated residential care planned in special schools for children with disabilities.
