Özet

Using examples from the author’s experiences in Cambodia, India and the US, the paper cautions against the trend of unconditional transfer of policies and practices in inclusive education prevalent in the US, or “first generation inclusive education” countries (Kozleski & Artiles, 2014) to “second generation inclusive education countries”. Differences in political, economic, social and cultural climates make these transfers less applicable in the new contexts and therefore less effective. The paper examines specific challenges relating to implementing inclusive education and in identifying and labeling students, and suggests the need to consider indigenous or local knowledge to develop more appropriate policies and practices.
