Explanation of the Post

From the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention against Discrimination in Education, declared by the UN in the 1960s, to the Salamanca Statement and Framework for Action on Special Needs Education, several countries have committed themselves to work for and for the inclusion and rights of children, adapting the corresponding educational laws to it. However, this commitment is not generalized or supported, and it is undermined at the time of its materialization in teaching practice, due to the lack of resources, both in terms of staff training, classroom ratio, as well as materials, that the country’s own government administration can provide to public educational centers.
