It would not be erroneous to state that educational discourse in India has been largely unresponsive to the challenges of education of children with disabilities until the recent past. With impetus provided to the ‘Education For All’ (EFA) adage by the implementation of the Right to Education Act (RtE), it is now being increasingly acknowledged that including children with disabilities into the mainstream is pertinent to achieving the EFA goal. This paper presents a brief overview of the multiple understandings of inclusive education and its interpretations for policy and makes a case for initiative on part of schools to embrace inclusive practices to improve the quality of teaching and learning for all its pupils.
