Should all students with special needs be admitted to special schools? Shouldn’t they have the right to get an education in general schools like other children? A recent Supreme Court observation related to the education of disabled children have raised these questions among child rights activist and academicians.
In the observation, the apex court said, “We are of the prima facie view that the children with special needs have to be imparted education not only by special teachers but there have to be special schools for them.”
