Inclusion Education and the Developing Countries: The Case of Bangladesh
Kibria, Gholam
Journal of the International Association of Special Education, v6 n1 p43-47 Spr 2005
Following the trends of "Inclusion" movement in the USA and some Western countries, a number of Developing countries have been imbued with the philosophy of inclusion education. Some of these countries have enacted laws to safeguard the educational rights and welfare of children with disabilities, and others have been trying to initiate inclusion classrooms in the regular education system. But the main question remains: Are teachers in these countries prepared to meet the challenges of full inclusion education in regular classroom? The pros and cons of the issue concerning inclusion education in the Developing countries have been discussed in the paper based on the scenario presented by Bangladesh. The author of the article, who was a Fulbright Senior Scholar at the Institute of Education and Research, Dhaka University, presents a step by step plan for implementation of inclusion education in Bangladesh, that could be adopted as a model for other Developing countries.
