Providing a quality education for all students in inclusive settings has been acknowledged as perhaps the most challenging, yet most important issue in education. The concept of inclusion places the stress on altering the system rather than the child. The inclusive school system is often thought of as the inclusion of all students, regardless of ability into the same schools and classrooms with peers who are not considered to have disabilities. Inclusive school is a school where all children are taught to understand and appreciate human differences. Teachers and administrators receive the support necessary to include all students in regular education classrooms. Parents concern for their children is taken seriously. In inclusive school, special education, is a service rather than a place. Inclusive teacher is likewise a teacher who is equipped with general as well as special techniques of teaching and who can ensure quality education for all students.
