On Tuesday, Jordan’s Ministry of Education and Mercy Corps launched the Inclusive Education Guideline Manual for public schools.

The Inclusive Education Manual aims to support Jordanian and Syrian children with disabilities who attend public schools.

According to a presentation at the launch event, the manual seeks to create better opportunities and experiences by allowing students from different backgrounds to share one classroom.

“We are delighted to equip the students and teachers at public schools in the Kingdom with the Inclusive Education Manual that will contribute to students’ social skills and help promote diversity in public schools.” said Education Minister Wajih Owais.

Mercy Corps Jordan Country Director Kari Diener said that guaranteeing equal opportunities through inclusive education is the most effective way to give all children a chance to learn, play and develop their skills.

“We have been working on this programme for over a decade, and have included thousands of students from different backgrounds in the Inclusive Education Programme.” said Maisa Asmar, education programme manager at Mercy Corps.
