The Sustainable Development of Inclusive Education
Lo, Leslie Nai-kwai
Chinese Education and Society, v40 n4 p44-62 Jul-Aug 2007
The advent of inclusive education has quietly changed the ecology of Hong Kong's educational system. Inclusive education is a product of education in the developed Western nations and has spread at the instigation of international organizations. It is a plan for educational development that is based on the concepts of human rights and peace and stresses respect for differences. However, it is also a means of managing schools that is easier to comprehend than to carry out. This paper attempts to explain the basic concepts of inclusive education, describe its operative elements, and discuss its practical problems. Drawing on research findings and developmental experience gained abroad and locally, the author makes some suggestions for the sustained development of inclusive education.
