Less than 1 percent disabled Indian kids enrolled in schools
Less than 1 percent of the disabled children in India are enrolled in the schools, parliament was informed Monday.
"The report of the National Right to Education (RTE) Forum Delhi and Society for Promotion of Area Resource Centres (SPARC) India shows that enrollment of disabled children in schools is less than 1 percent," Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply.
Irani said that under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), a number of interventions are taken up to enroll 'Children With Special Needs' (CWSN) in schools, which include early identification and assessment through camps, provision of aids and appliances and teacher training on handling of CWSN.
"It also includes appointment of resource teachers to support regular school teachers, barrier free access to schools, provision of Braille books and other essential teaching learning equipment apart from active engagement with the community and parents to send CWSN to schools," she added.
