Abstract

The objective of education is to mold an individual in such a manner that it would bring out the best so that they could supplement societal growth. Education system in India has evolved over time. Earlier Vedic Education was different from the contemporary system. India since her Independence in 1947 has seen the emphasis on the value of Education. From the first enactment of the Constitution of India till the Right of Education Act has been the example of the Government's seriousness on the issue. Education in India and all over the world is considered as the tool to remove unemployment, improve standard of living and reduce poverty. When it comes to the question of marginalised weaker sections of the society, education becomes more paramount. The Constitution of India created the right to education as the fundamental rights of every citizen. However in spite of this constitutional guarantee there still exists a strata of society which have been disadvantaged due to some disability and are left without education and this creates the need for a system of Inclusive Education.
