The Kothari Commission, which bears the name of its chairman, P.S. Kothari, was established by the Indian government in 1964. This commission was established by the Indian government to provide a strategy for enhancing the educational system. People with disabilities were included in the Kothari Commission's action plan, but sadly the Indian government never carried it through. We now turn to educate youngsters with disabilities, it says. Their education has to be planned on more than just utilitarian or humanitarian grounds. An appropriately educated youngster may often overcome their disability and become a contributing member of society. On a broad perspective of the issue, however, we believe that experiments with integrated programmes are urgently needed and that every effort should be made to enrol as many kids as possible in integrated programmes.
