Education of Disabled People according to the Current Polish Law

Nowadays, there is no clear definition of disability. It is said that disability is a multi-layered concept in that it entails not only physical incapacitation but also serious social handicap, preventing disabled people from functioning properly. In fact, albeit that it is commonly acknowledged that they shall be granted equal rights to non-disabled people, disabled still must cope with many barriers. The right to education is classified as a core human right, that is why it is crucial to give people with disabilities open  access to education. At present, disabled children may be provided education through two distinct modes. The original philosophy stems from an idea that disabled should be educated separately, in special schools. The alternative is an inclusive education system in which disabled and non-disabled children share the same school. It is submitted that only inclusive education is able to provide high quality service to disabled and rid any remnants of discrimination from the social scene. Unfortunately, despite extensive legal regulation in this field disabled people as a whole still suffer from a standard of education that falls below par, a detriment which may translate to lowering their professional and social prospects, and ultimately, the quality of their lives.
