The inclusive education movement, which advocates for children with disabilities being educated directly alongside their non-disabled peers, came to India with a six-year initiative jointly organized by The Spastics Society of India and The Roeher Institute of Canada. The initiative began in the slums of the city of Mumbai (formerly Bombay) and sought to implement changes at the classroom level and at the national policy level. This volume describes the initiative and assesses its impacts. It discusses the aims, mandate, structure, organization, and five-year plan of the National Resource Centre for Inclusion-India; discusses the ideas behind the initiative; describes the restructuring of initiative schools; reviews the pedagogy developed for the schools; explores school-community-parent relations; and draws on the lessons of the project in order to develop a broad framework for systemic change for inclusive education.
