Nepal: Barriers to Inclusive Education
Segregation, Lack of Accessibility for Children with Disabilities
Thursday 13 September 2018
(Brussels, September 14, 2018) – Children with disabilities in Nepal face serious obstacles to quality, inclusive education, Human Rights Watch said today.
Despite progress in law and policy, the government segregates most children with disabilities into separate classrooms. It has yet to train teachers to provide inclusive education, in which children with and without disabilities learn together. Tens of thousands of children with disabilities remain out of school.
