Inclusive education is about the integration approach of the disabled learners in schools. It is under this inclusion model that learners with special needs spend most or all of their time with non-disabled learners. While inclusive education has its benefits, there are enormous challenges hindering its effective implementation especially in developing countries. This article briefly examines the following: Inadequate Educational Facilities, Poor Teacher Training, Poor policy implementation. There are certainly some issues with the law, but on the whole the IDEA is a requirement to allow children with disabilities to have equal access to the curriculum, and an equal opportunity to succeed. In general, the criticisms are not applicable to the majority of children receiving services under an individualized educational plan (IEP). A number of children receive reading supports, speech therapy, and other services to create an environment which fosters success. While the initial services cost taxpayers money, there are cost savings over the long term – a child who obtains an appropriate education is more likely to be employed and become a productive member of society. Refusing to educate a significant proportion of the population (up to 10% of American children receive services under the IDEA) would create a greater economic problem in the long run.
A 2014 study in The Atlantic’s Politics & Policy Daily found that the unemployment rates for black college graduates was much higher than the rate for white graduates. Studies on labor market discrimination have shown that even when black and white candidates have the same qualifications, the black candidate is less likely to be called back for an interview.
I hope I have demonstrated how flawless the high school education system is in this restrictively short essay. The teachers are rewarded handsomely for their work with a well paying secure job but the students are the ones that bring it all together. With their passion for knowledge and ability to learn the required material and forget it completely, they deserve the most acknowledgement. Also, the grading system provides strong encouragement to retain knowledge only until the test so that the students will be able to solely rely on their instincts to survive life after education because they won’t remember anything they were taught in high school.
There will be no need to study again and spend more money in order to qualify for international standards. With a K-12 education, Filipino professionals who aspire to work abroad will not have a hard time getting jobs in their chosen field. Furthermore, they will be able to help their families in the Philippines more with remittances, property purchase, and small businesses.
I suffer from anxiety that has made it difficult to hold a job long-term. Been working temp agency’s for over a decade with the occasional full-time job in-between. One hurdle many have to overcome to obtain work is current documentation. A friend lets me use his address or it would be more difficult for me to work.
In the UK, we’re not under any legal obligation to inform anyone. If the child is in school, then we have to deregister – it’s then the school’s responsibility to remove the child from the school roll. If the child is not yet in school, then we just carry on as usual. However, more and more Local Authorities are trying to collect data on the number of home-schooled children. Some of them use spurious rules and regs to intimidate – if you stand up to them, there’s not much they can do. We (our family) have never had any contact from any official – hooray!
