Opportunities and Challenges: An Examination of Educational Landscape for People with Visual Impairment in China
Hu, Luanjiao
Current Issues in Comparative Education, v24 n1 p96-113 Win 2022
Globally, increasing attention has been paid to disability inclusion in the education sector, from international development to national policymaking. Discussions on inclusive education appear in various conferences, events, policy briefs, academic articles, and global reports. The 2020 Global Education Monitoring Report centralizes inclusion in education, advocates the message of "All Means All", and highlights inclusive education as its core recommendation (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, 2020). In the context of increasing global discourse around disability inclusion in education, how does education for people with disabilities fare at local and national levels? Building on the author's prior research experience and connection to disability rights movement in China, this study sets out to explore the educational landscape for a specific population -- Chinese people with visual impairments, and identifies various challenges and opportunities facing education inclusion in greater details.
