SCHOOLS must accept all special needs students and prepare an individual education plan for every child under the Education Ministry’s “zero reject” policy, which has been made compulsory starting this year.

The ‘zero reject’ policy is to ensure that all special needs students have access to education, the ministry said in a circular issued on Dec 26, 2018, while Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik previously said that it is also an effort to prevent dropouts among students with disabilities.
