School curriculum soon to have chapter on disability


In order to increase awareness and sensitise the young generations about the issues of differently abled kids at schools, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar had announced the inclusion of chapters on ‘disability’ in curriculums. A bike rally titled ‘Ride for Accessibility’ was recently organised in New Delhi as part of the campaign run by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to spread awareness about the issue. Leading bike groups from the city participated in the rally, lending full support to the move. Moreover, the campaign was initially launched by PM Narendra Modi in December last year on the International Day for Persons with Disabilities.
