The government of Ethiopia has been concerned to make education accessible for all irrespective of their disability, gender, language, socio-economic status, religion, and other differences. This concern is manifested through the moves and efforts made to realize the principle of education for all in the country. A major factor influencing the movement towards education for all in Ethiopia is the adoption of various international legal and policy frameworks, conventions, declarations, framework of actions, and forums. Following the adoptions of international treaties, education has been considered as a human right approach within the country’s policy, strategy, program and plan documents. In those documents, due emphasis is given to the education of children and youth with disabilities with the intention of creating equal access.
