Difference and defiance

Written Material

This editorial to a New Internationalist special on disability gives a brief introduction to the issue of disability cross culturally. The author cites a positive example of inclusive schooling in Zanzibar and quotes a teacher who makes the simple but profound statement, "They make the children ask themselves 'Why are we alone?'". Baird also broaches the imperative that medical people feel to "normalise" people with disabilities and cautions about an over reliance on technology. Keywords: Inclusion, Cross Cultural
