Chapter 2(C) - Inclusive Education Exercise 59

Solution 1(1)

The fox, in order to become the best school, insisted the teachers to teach and the students to learn things they didn't want to. The animals refused to learn and failed because they were taught to do things they were incapable of.

Solution 1(2)

The main reason as to why the results improved was because the students were given the freedom to choose subjects of their own choice.

Solution 1(3)

Yes. Present day's school resembles the Fox's school because they are more knowledge oriented than skill oriented. Even though we talk about vocational education today, we believe in gaining professional education to get a job and earn money rather than inculcate the talent within.

Solution 1(4)

Yes. The bat's advice can be extended to present day schools as well in order to mock at the prevailing education system, which focuses mainly on knowledge than skills and talents.

Solution 2

· Motivating words to enhance morale of different kinds of students;

· Judging students according to their capabilities;

· Work assignments assigned on different criteria;

· Judging every individual's intelligence quotient; etc.

Solution 3

To me the term "inclusive education" means an approach to educate students with special educational needs. Under this system, students with special needs spend most or all of their time with non-disabled students.

Solution 8(5)

The poor infrastructure that the students of Babar Ali's school study in is obvious from the condition of his backyard where the children seated on mud, rickety benches in a rough homemade shelter.

Babar Ali

Murshidabad,

West Bengal

Dear Babar,

First of all, I want to congratulate you on the wonderful work you have been doing! I came across your story while watching the BBC. After watching the show, I felt that I too should participate in your education project. It is remarkable that you can manage to teach 800 students after school and with a meager infrastructure. I am amazed by your efforts and the enthusiasm of the students who are interested in getting a good education.

Inspired by your efforts, I have decided to build a school in Murshidabad for your 800 students. Not only that, I would also ensure that some of the best teachers from Calcutta can come down and teach at this new school. I also plan to give financial support which is necessary for the functioning of this school so that we can give these 800 students a quality education. I hope this news makes you and your students happy. All the best in all your future endeavours.

Anju Kar,

Minister (Mass Education),

Chapter 2(C) - Inclusive Education Exercise 72

Solution 15

Inclusive education means students getting to study what they like to study. It means making a student aware of his/her unique talents and allowing them to express their individuality. Inclusive education means everyone getting an equal opportunity to study irrespective of their financial condition. Such education should help a student make his/her own unique career choice.

The attitude of parents, teachers, classmates and the society in general plays a major role in promoting inclusive education. The curriculum should be such that it inculcates inclusive education and the teachers should also teach in an interesting manner. There should be enough policy support and infrastructure support for a student to pursue the subjects that interest him.
