With several empirical evidences this book advocates on the importance of human capital of persons with disabilities and demands the paradigm shift from charity into investment approach. Society in general believes that people with disabilities cannot benefit from education cannot participate in the labour market and cannot be contributing members to families and countries. To invalidate such assumptions this book describes how education in particular helps make persons with disabilities achieve economic independence and social inclusion. For the first time detailed analyses of returns to the investment in education and nexus between disability education employability and occupational options are discussed. Moreover other chapters describe disability and poverty followed by the discussion of barriers behind why persons with disabilities are unable to obtain education despite the significantly higher returns. These foundational themes recur throughout the book.Printed Pages: 286.
