Bachelor and Diploma programmes in Education to include modules on disability

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: Kapil Sibal, Minister for Human Resource and Development, has said that the curriculum for Bachelor and Diploma programmes in Education will now have modules on special education to train teachers to work with children with disabilities. This follows the recent amendment of the Right to Education Act which brought children with disabilities under the purview of the Act.

Sibal made this announcement while answering a query in the Rajya Sabha. It has been widely noted that there is a dearth of special educators and teachers equipped to handle children with disabilities. As of now, only 3 percent of teachers have had an extensive 90 days training on working with children with disabilities. Most States like Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand do not have sufficient special educators as required by law.
