The inclusion of students with disabilities was initiated by the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development in the Solomon Islands in 2013. This paper investigates the knowledge, skills, and values of school leaders in public and private schools in Honiara, the capital of the Solomon Islands, in regard to providing support for inclusive education in their respective schools. Completed questionnaires were received from 85 leaders of secondary, primary, and early childhood centres. Results indicate that while leaders are very positive about their abilities to support their schools they still need professional learning in specific areas related to inclusive education. The implication of this for preparing school leaders for inclusive education in the Solomon Islands is discussed.
