Salamanca Five Years On: A Review of UNESCO Activities in the Light of the Salamanca Statement and Framework for Action on Special Needs Education.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France). Special Education.
This report is a review of effects of the Salamanca Statement and Framework for Action, a product of representatives of 92 governments and 25 international organizations who attended the 1994 World Conference on Special Needs Education: Access and Quality. It reports that UNESCO has been disseminating the recommendations from the Salamanca World Conference and has assumed a catalytic role in disseminating ideas and practices concerning meeting special educational needs within the regular educational system. The main thrust of UNESCO's efforts has focused on developing national capacities for policymaking and systems management in support of inclusive education and bringing forward the concerns of people with disabilities, as well as other marginalized groups, on the wider educational agenda and on the agendas of international development organizations. Separate sections report on activities, accomplishments, and publications concerned with building capacities for educational change, human resource development, inclusive schools and community support programs, inclusion on the wider education agenda, and information, networking, and dissemination. (Contains 13 resources.) (DB)
