China’s Ministry of Education has issued a guideline on improving children with disabilities learning in regular classes for compulsory education.
The document aims to remove the obstacles that keep children with disabilities from learning in regular classes, and enhance the quality of education, Xinhua reported.
It highlights a sounder assessment and verification mechanism for students with disabilities, which will decide whether a child with disability is fit for a regular class.
The database for middle school and primary school students should be fully utilized to make sure children with disabilities with learning capabilities, whose ages are eligible for compulsory education, do not drop out of school, according to the guideline.
As for the quality of education, the document stresses sound adjustments to teaching content and methods based on students with disabilities conditions.
It encourages customized teaching schemes to help them improve their independent living.
It also calls for more specific evaluations of students with disabilities in regular classes, which underline their social adaptation and work abilities.
