Summary/Abstract: The inclusive education in Poland has its origins in 2006, when Poland became a member of the European Agency for Special Needs and Inclusion Education. Although earlier studies on the inclusion of pupils with disabilities in primary schools have not been found in the literature, only since 2006 have there been an increase in interest in inclusion. Inclusive education is based on the social understanding of the needs of people with disabilities who have the right to use on equal terms with universal education such as those with disabilities. Representatives of the inclusion trend also point to the plane of personalistic pedagogy. This trend is also based on John Dewey’s concept or Janusz Korczak’s. Activities for inclusive education are undertaken by more and more educators, not only theorists but also practitioners. They see in the inclusion a chance for a good start to life not only children with disabilities, but all pupils.
