Abstract: The purpose of this research is to comparatively evaluate the policy and praxis of inclusive education concerning including learners with special educational needs and pre-service teachers’ perceptions in Nigeria and Fiji. The mixed-methods approach was used to examine both qualitative and quantitative data. A total of 811 pre-service teachers from both countries completed the questionnaire titled “Perceptions of Pre-Service Teachers to Inclusion Scale (PPTIS)” and 21 others were purposively sampled for the qualitative aspects of the research. The survey measures their perceptions towards the inclusion of students with disabilities in the general education classroom and teachers’ belief in their capacity to teach this population.
