School Readiness For Inclusive Education In Tripura, India
Keywords:Inclusive education, India, school readiness
AbstractThe changing educational scenario in India is seeing a huge emphasis on inclusive education. Efforts are seen in the direction of bringing the children from varied marginalised sections into the fold of inclusive classrooms. Inclusion of children with disability is of crucial importance too. The present study attempted to understand whether the schools in the state of Tripura are ready for inclusive education in its true sense. Data collected from the headmasters/headmistresses of the schools, the school teachers, and the observation of the physical infrastructure were analysed. Results suggest that the schools are far from being ready for inclusion, but are attempting to inch forward gradually.
