BIS - An Inclusive School3 min read 14 Dec 2021, 06:42 PM IST
BIS is one of the few schools in India that includes ALL children in every activity within the school, allowing them to learn from one another and developing compassion and acceptance from a very early age
“It is not beyond our power to create a world in which all children have access to a good education". These words by Nelson Mandela resonate with every parent’s desire to give their children the best according to their ability. While the education system in India has developed by leaps and bounds, it has not yet fully grasped inclusivity at all levels. The reason for this is not because schools do not want to, but because they do not know how to. Every child is unique and needs to be handled in a different way. Some grasp faster than others while some take their time; some learn to tie their shoelaces at 3 while some don’t get it right even at 8. These are small examples, but then there are children who have special needs, need extra care and attention and most of all time and love. Most schools in India find it incredibly difficult to integrate these children into mainstream education but isn’t that exactly what they need and want- to be accepted like anyone else.
