If government guidelines do not adapt to promote inclusive education, we risk perpetuating inequalities, marginalizing certain student groups, and hindering their educational opportunities. It is crucial for governments to prioritize inclusive education policies, allocate resources for teacher training, and ensure equal access to quality education for all students. By doing so, we can create inclusive societies and prepare students for a diverse and interconnected world.
