Highlights

In 2019, children with disabilities in Cambodia were three times less likely to access educational opportunities than their peers without disabilities. Several barriers impede their ability to access inclusive educational opportunities. These include limited capacity of mainstream schools to enroll children with disabilities, lack of teachers who are trained in pedagogical strategies and approaches to teach children with various types of functional difficulties, and community perceptions towards inclusive education. A holistic approach is required to ensure necessary changes are made at all levels of the education system to ensure that children with disabilities can access inclusive learning in Cambodia. This is the first report under the Learning is For Everyone (LiFE) project and offers key recommendations to address barriers.
