As an instructor teaching a course on Inclusive Education in a Masters’ in Education programme for the past six years now, year after year, I have to deal with a fair degree of scepticism from my students. Having been exposed to the realities of the public education system as part of their curriculum, the students are well versed with the constraints within which a majority of the schools in India operate. By now, they have seen enough poorly resourced classrooms, met teachers with little training and no motivation to engage and interacted with children with low learning levels struggling to make meaning of a rigid curriculum that is far removed from their immediate contexts.
