Implementation Barriers of Inclusive Education and their Impact on Stakeholders: A Review of the Literature

Stephanie Hollings

 

ABSTRACT: 

The global initiatives of Education for All and inclusive education have created many unique problems as countries around the world find ways to both implement inclusive policies and with the realization of how the different stakeholders learn to play their part in successful implementation. This study aims to use the literature on inclusive education from 18 different countries and contexts to determine the main barriers towards inclusive education implementation. These barriers will be used to highlight key challenges, attitudes, and perceptions in all levels of stakeholders and in a broader sense if these issues that emerge are more regional or global, thus showing the key issues when it comes to inclusive education implementation, policies, practices, and where more concern should be placed.
