The revelation that a disproportionate number of mentally challenged children are being admitted in some government schools in Thiruvananthapuram that are not equipped to meet their special needs, allegedly in order to avoid ‘division fall,’ while the Education Department claims it is borne out of its greater interest in the welfare of such children through the process of integration, has caused concern.

In this context, what steps can the government take to make its “integrated approach to education” work? Or, is such an approach the solution at all?

Please send in your response, a maximum of 300 words, by post, e-mail or by hand, to reach us by August 28. The postal address is:
