The New Challenges of the Inclusive Education in Romania
In the spirit of the promotion of an inclusive education, within which equal opportunities to education are ensured, the Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sport has passed a new legislation pack in 2011. This pack has brought a number of important changes to the process of school inclusion, more precisely, changes in the diagnosis, intervention and monitoring process for children with special educational needs (SEN) within the special and integrated education. With all the efforts made to transform the traditional educational system into an inclusive one, there are still many weak elements which regard areas such as: financing, coherent and consistent educational policies, new ways of recruitment and, initial and continuing teacher education, collaboration between secondary and university education as well the business field etc.
The study aims to evaluate the opinions of children’s parents with SEN regarding the opportunity and efficiency of the new algorithm specific to inclusive education.
