The editorial, ‘Why the dis­abled are drop­ping out of schools (HT, June 29)’ raises an im­por­tant is­sue of ed­u­ca­tion of the dis­abled. The gov­ern­ment and so­ci­ety must take the prob­lem se­ri­ously. Gov­ern­ment poli­cies about the ed­u­ca­tion of ‘di­vyang’ are un­for­tu­nate. They show its cal­lous­ness and in­dif­fer­ence. ‘Di­vyang’ should be ad­mit­ted to com­mon schools, mainly on ground of so­cia­bil­ity. The pro­vi­sion of spe­cial teach­ers and in­fra­struc­ture should be made. Dis­abled chil­dren are a valu­able prop­erty of so­ci­ety and equipped with spe­cial tal­ent that needs to be har­nessed.
