Abstract:This study investigates the views of blind primary school pupils towards inclusive education. The main objective is to assess how people with disabilities themselves view inclusive education. Do they appreciate and accept it? The study was conducted in one primary school in Zimbabwe in November 2000. Fifty blind pupils were involved. A Likert-type questionnaire (brailled), which required subjects to give reasons for their answers, was the instrument used to collect data. Data analysis was done using the Likert scale analysis procedures typical of attitudinal studies. The study establishes that the majority of blind pupils (63 percent) are against inclusive education. Many feel that apart from social and academic rejection, they would not be able to acquire useful skills and knowledge in inclusive settings. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
