Details The purpose of this study is to compare students’ views on inclusive education in Japan and Italy. Method: Questionnaires about opinions on inclusive education were handed out in each country to 92 Japanese students of 1 public secondary school, and 159 Italian students of 3 public secondary schools.
The difference in value of inclusive education between Japan and Italy probably reflects the cultural, social, and historical contexts of both countries. It can be suggested that Japanese students want more contact with students with disabilities.
