President Dr Arif Alvi has called for providing equal educational opportunities to all children, regardless of physical ability or socio-economic background, by promoting inclusive education in the country.
He was talking to the representatives of private schools and schools run by NGOs in Karachi today.
The President urged private schools and welfare organizations to support the governments in making education accessible for all children, especially Children with Disabilities.
He emphasized the need for the development and implementation of an inclusive curriculum that accommodated diverse learning styles and catered to the needs of students with different abilities.
The President said that educational institutions should be made physically accessible for SWDs by ensuring the availability of ramps, elevators, and other necessary facilities.
He further underscored the need for drafting a basic chart on Inclusive Education by all the stakeholders, which should include fundamental aspects of inclusive education, including easy access for PWDs in schools, and training of private school teachers on special education tools.
