PASSAGE
In a country where half of the children in the age group of 5-14 are out of school how can there be space for children  with disabilities, specially if segregated schooling is being advocated for them?  Even if the legislation optimistically tries to make education  available to every disabled child, parents in a village do not see this as instrumental in achieving any autonomy for their disabled child.  What they would prefer is perhaps a better way of fetching water from the well and improved agricultural facilities.  Similarly, parents in an urban slum expect education to be related to a world of work that would enhance their child’s basic quality of life.   
(a) According to the author of this passage, what kind  of educational facilities do disabled children need?  Do you agree? 
      Give reasons for your answer.
(b) It is said that social attitudes towards the disabled are as much of a problem for them as their disability itself.   What is the
      justification for such a view, and what is your own opinion on this issue? 6
