Abstract

This research report focuses on the investigation of Stakeholders‟ Perception on Implementation of Inclusive Education in Primary Schools in Kibaha Town Council in Coast region in Tanzania. The study explored stakeholder‟s views on implementation of inclusive education, to find out practical activities and services employed on implementation of inclusive education and also to find out the main challenges associated with the implementation of inclusive education. A case study design was used, with a total sample of 103 informants and respondents from the six inclusive primary schools out of eighteen schools. Probability and non-probability sampling was used. Purposive sampling was used to get regular teachers and parents of children without disabilities. Primary data were collected using interviews, observation and questionnaires, whereas, secondary data were obtained through documentary reviews. The study revealed that stakeholders including the government, the special education teachers, the parents of children with disabilities, and non-governmental organizations perceive inclusive education positively despite some challenges like inadequate special materials, unfriendly school environment and shortages of teachers trained in special education. The result indicates that Inclusive education was introduced in the country without due preparations. The education is well perceived by both students and teachers, parents and the community. Collaborative efforts with different partners have to play their part in order to make inclusive education successful for the development of the country.
