New Policy of Education for children with special needs

New Year seems to be bringing a new beginning in the lives of children with special needs as the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is planning to implement a comprehensive guideline for these students in 2018.

According to media reports, the CBSE has on November 21, 2017 constituted a 22-member committee to formulate a policy for education of children with special needs at its schools across the country. The committee is working on finalising the draft.

“The committee to formulate the policy will look into all aspects, including the provisions for education of such children in the RTE Act and the RPwD Act. Schools and other stakeholders have been invited to give suggestions,” a CBSE official was quoted as saying by a news agency.

“CBSE is preparing a comprehensive policy for students with special needs so as to take corrective measures wherever necessary and add value to the life of these students. The policy will also look at implementing the provisions laid down by the ministry of social justice for such students and make the school campuses barrier-free,” a MHRD official was quoted as saying by TOI.

According to other reports, teachers of CBSE-affiliated schools will be attending workshops on behavioural problems of special kids to help them to ensure these kids get equal opportunities in schools.
