Bahrudin Bahrudin, Indra Jaya, Cecep Kustandi


This research is on the Implementation of special needs schools as Resources Center for Inclusive Education in Jakarta, Indonesia. This study aims to determine the implementation of special needs schools as organizers of inclusive educational resource centers. This research was conducted in a special needs school designated as an inclusive education resource center numbering 18 schools in Jakarta. This research uses a qualitative approach. Implementing the special needs schools' program as a resource center for inclusive education illustrates that the condition of inclusive education has not been maximized because there is still a lack of means to support the activities of inclusive educational resource centers. In addition, the need for training on inclusive education for teachers and education personnel becomes important for inclusive schools to do.
