FACTORS INFLUENCING EDUCATION OF CHILDREN WITH MENTAL RETARDATION

FACTORS INFLUENCING EDUCATION OF CHILDREN WITH MENTAL RETARDATION

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study

Education for children with special needs and disabilities in Nigeria started in
1950s with children with visual impairment (Mnyanyi, 2014; Kapinga, 2013). For
children with mental retardation started in late 1980s in Nigeria but in Kibaha
district education for mentally retarded children started in Kongowe primary school
in 2000. The question is what factors influence access to education? Do children with
mental retarded brought in the same way as other children? If not what factors
influence their enrolment, school participation and completion? This study is set
around investigating factors influencing access to education for mentally retarded
children in ikere Town Council.

By this regards, (TETP, 1995) viewed Primary education in Nigeria is set to be
compulsory to every child of 7 years old. The education is provided in primary
schools for seven years. Issues to be addressed by this study focus on factors influencing access to education for children with mental retardation. It cannot be
over emphasized that children with disabilities do face barriers in accessing
education in terms of human resources, supply of learning materials, assistive
technologies to support their learning and parents’ ability to buy teaching materials
for children with disabilities. Since independence, Tanzania has been emphasizing on
the importance of providing education to its people.

Statement of the Problem
UNESCO (1998) reports that even in countries where policies emphasize
compulsory education, children with disabilities do not attend school due to limited
provision or lack of strict rules enforcement for these groups. In Nigeria, and
Kibaha in particular, since 2000 there has been an increase in enrolment for children
with and without disabilities in primary schools. This has been attributing to an
increase in awareness and change of attitudes by parents, teachers and the general
public towards educating children, including those with mental disabilities.
