Education

Primary Education Acts have been enacted by various State Governments to provide for free primary education to children. It is the obligation of the local authority to provide for compulsory free education to children within its jurisdiction.

The Secondary Education Acts of different states ensure that children have access to higher education, including persons with disabilities, if found fit and eligible to pursue higher education.


Advocacy is going on for the inclusion of children with disabilities into regular schools.


The Government of Tamilnadu has passed an order to ensure that no child is denied admission on the grounds of disability, in all primary schools of the state.
