George Abraham shares his thoughts on inclusive education
November 30, 2017
The Supreme Court of India recently observed that it is not possible to think that disabled children can be included in the regular schools for getting an education.
George Abraham, founder of World Blind Cricket Council, motivational speaker, disability rights activist shares his thoughts on inclusive education.
Abraham shares that being blind himself, his journey in getting education in the mainstream school was not easy.
However, his classmates and teachers were very supportive and made efforts to create an accessible environment for him.
Abraham said that inclusive education means different for different disabilities and there is a huge lack of awareness among the policymakers.
He said mainstream education is a win win situation for both disabled and non disabled people.
It helps non disabled children to respect the diversity in the society and disabled people to socially connect with people and deal with their disability.
