Focus on education for disabled children

By Our Staff Reporter

KOCHI JAN. 27. The North South Dialogue II on inclusive education organised by the National Resource Centre for Inclusion (NRCI) was inaugurated by the Governor of Kerala, Sikandar Bakht, here today.

The NRCI was formed by the Spastics Society of India as an Indo-Canadian initiative to include disabled children from special schools into normal schools.

Delivering the inaugural address, Mr. Bakht dwelt on the callous attitude of society towards the needs of the disabled. Including himself in the group of people who have not done any work for the disabled, he wished that the clock could be reversed. Mr. Bakht released two books on the occasion. `Invisible Children: A Study of Policy Inclusion' by Mithu Alur, the founder chairperson of the Spastics Society of India and `From Segregation to Integration' edited by Mithu Alur and Seamus Hegarty.
