Inclusion

Inclusion in mainstream schools is a very important objective of Norwegian educational policy. 

Norwegian pupils are entitled to teaching as specially-adapted as possible. As far as possible and advisable, this should take place in the local mainstream school. 

The law clearly states that: ‘Education in school is to be adapted to the individual pupil’s abilities and capabilities. Pupils who do not or cannot achieve a satisfactory learning yield from ordinary teaching, have a right to special needseducation’.
