Educational Right for Children with Special Needs: A comparison between Malaysia and Thailand
Keywords:Children with disabilities, educational right, the effectiveness of the law
Even though Section 28 of the Persons with Disabilities Act 2008 provides the educational right for persons with disabilities, especially children with special needs, their educational right is not protected effectively since the laws and regulations governing the educational right of children with special needs in Malaysia are scattered. This paper aims to compare the practice of laws relating to special education between Malaysia and Thailand. The authors conduct a doctrinal analysis to complete this paper where textbooks and journal articles related to special education for children with special needs in Malaysia and Thailand are analysed.
