Karangwa, Evariste; Ghesquiere, Pol; Devlieger, Patrick
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v11 n5-6 p607-626 Sep 2007

It points out that it is not all gloomy news. In the face of the challenging socio-economic situations, the search for appropriate inclusion models for Rwanda should be guided by two important factors: The lessons learnt from the past mistakes, and by exploring alternative prospects that may involve rediscovering the untapped potentials within the grassroots communities.
