This research approached the issue of the right to education for children with disabilities in
Rwanda. It sought to analyse Rwandan international obligations regarding the right to
education of the above mentioned category of children. It also sought to explore Rwandan
legal and policy frameworks that were designed to protect and promote the right to education
of these children.
The research found that some of the provisions of Rwandan legal frameworks do not align
with international standards because they focus on segregation rather than on inclusion. The
study found also that some policy and strategic frameworks, either overlook the issue of the
inclusive education, or do not provide comprehensive strategies to deal with this human
The research recommended that the amendment be made with respect to the policy and
strategic plan framework that disregard or do not provide comprehensively the right to
education for children with disabilities. It also urged that the discriminatory provisions be
repealed. Finally, the research recommended that the GoR should elaborate a specific policy
that promotes inclusive education in order to reach to the education for all by 2015.
