Education for some? The exploration of inclusive education in Trinidad and Tobago
MetadataShow full item record
This paper illustrates the state of inclusive education within Trinidad and Tobago. We highlight that inclusive education is a part of the broader right to equality of persons with disabilities. Further, in spite of the many international mandates that the country of Trinidad and Tobago has—with respect to the rights of persons with disabilities to education—the state of inclusive education in Trinidad and Tobago is a far cry from its potential. International and national laws are explored, as well as the national policy on persons with disabilities. Given the many barriers to inclusive education, we conclude that the right to education for all persons is not a right.
