Challenges and tendencies - Poland

Special education is an integral part of the Polish education system. This is an arrangement provided for in the School Education Act of 7 September 1991. New definitions and rules for the organisation of special education were introduced by the amendments of this act. The reformed school education system (at the primary and lower secondary levels), special education included, has been implemented under the Act of 8 January 1999 (on the implementation of the education system reforms). The Act of 15 March 2002 amending School Education (and other acts) introduced the new types of post gymnasium schools.

In 1993 Poland started to include children with SEN into mainstream and integrated schools giving the parents the right to choose a school for their child with special educational needs.
