Inclusive education in Ghana: What are the levers for change? presentation

This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2009 Conference, August 2009, Ghana. The policy guiding the principle and practice of inclusion was first adopted at the World Conference held in Salamanca, Spain in June 1994. Now regarded as the Salamanca Statement (Unesco, 1994), the statement has drawn global attention to access and quality in delivery of special needs education. Considering the importance this could have, it was later emphasised at the World Education Forum Dakar, Senegal in 2000 and supported by the UN Standard Rules on the Equalization of Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities proclaiming participation and equality for all.
