A Qualitative Study of Parental Perceptions of Inclusive Education in Kazakhstan: The View of Three

  • Zarina Khamidulina KERA


Kazakhstan is presently undergoing a number of developments in the education system. One of the main reform directions includes the development of inclusive education. The problem is that the reform lacks a focus on increasing social awareness about inclusive education (Zholtayeva et al., 2013). This qualitative-interview based study aims at exploring parental perceptions about the inclusion of children with special needs at the mainstream schools. The results of this study make important revelations about the parental understandings of the policy, their attitudes and possible challenges schools face when implementing the inclusive education practices.
