“Reasonable Accommodations” or Education for All? The Case of Children Living With Disabilities in Cambodia

Abstract
The authors examine the various challenges and barriers to education for children living with disabilities, primarily those living with deafness and blindness in Cambodia. Poverty and economic instability of families are key hindrances to educational opportunities for these children. Other barriers include lack of government ownership of educational programs for people with disabilities, poor governance and low accountability of the government, lack of funding and finances, limited human capacity and resources, and social discrimination and stigma. This poses the question as to what is reasonable accommodation to ensure that children living with disabilities can access schooling.
