From the society’s point of view, there is a strong case for ensuring that all obtain a basic education. It could indeed facilitate national cohesion and make a more efficient use of social and cultural capital. From the individual’s point of view, providing special education to disabled could not only contribute to self-esteem and self-confidence of these persons, but also reduce the carers’ burden (social workers and family). This paper aims at evaluating the carers’ cost avoidance.
