van Rensburg, Henriette and Adcock, Betty (2020) The Challenges of Inclusive Education in Developing Countries in South East Asia. In: Inclusive Theory and Practice in Special Education. IGI Publishing (IGI Global), Hershey, United States, pp. 1-18. ISBN 9781799829010


Abstract

This conceptual chapter presents an overview of the current developments in special education, specifically in inclusive education, and focuses only on the barriers experienced by the different stakeholders in developing countries in South East Asia. To support inclusion and equity in education, governments need to influence public opinion, implement legislation and policy regulations, and provide financial resources. The three key stakeholders are the government, educational professionals, and families. There are also others including instructors and other education professionals, teacher trainers and researchers, national, local, and school-level administrators and managers, policy-makers and service providers in other sectors, civic groups in the community, and members of minority groups who are at risk of exclusion. Awareness of the value of inclusive education should be raised amongst all stakeholders to develop a network of support for all learners.
