Attitudes towards inclusive education in Russia


  • Gorban , Maria

    () (CEFIR, Moscow, Russia)


The paper looks at the factors affecting people’s attitudes towards inclusive education — a practice of educating children with special needs jointly with the «ordinary» children. The analysis uses the data from a pilot survey in four Russian regions which covered people with three different types of disability, as well as general population and shows that in general, people with different types of disability are perceiving the idea of inclusive education differently. The level of education and personal educational experience have turned out to be among most important factors. Participating in the disability-related NGOs, as well as geographical factor, are also significant. At the same time sex, children and family size are not affecting the attitudes towards inclusive education.
