Following the declaration of EFA, Salamanca Statement and Framework for Action clearly identifies Inclusive Education (IE) as a means of attaining EFA. UNESCO (1994) proclaimed that: Regular schools with this inclusive orientation
But the state may also make education compulsory up to a certain maximum extent. A statuate imposing compulsory for no one has any right to remain ignorant.2 The education of the children must necessarily be compulsory in the interest of the nation.3 The mind of the child is like a clean state and therefore it is essential that the child should be engaged in studying and should get little time for mischief that may lead to delinquency. “A child is the father of the man” and a future citizen.
