Title Policy Recommendations for Education of Persons with Disabilities in India: A Critical Analysis
Creator ., Pravesh
Description Many millions of children across the globe have been marginalized or excluded from schools because they have some form of disability. These children face discrimination not only in educational institutions but also in society. India is also facing a similar situation as disabled children constitute a very large part of the population, i.e., 26.8 million (Census, 2011). To enhance their education and to make them equal members of society, many efforts have been made in India by the Government at the policy level. From the days of the Kothari Commission 1966 to the NEP 2020, many laws, and regulations have been formed to support disabled children to face life with courage and confidence.  The present research deals with a review of the policy level efforts in India made regarding the education of disabled children and to provide them inclusive and acceptable environment. Based on the review of policy documents, the research also makes some recommendations to make the education of disabled children accessible and effective, and normal in a general education system.
