This descriptive qualitative research with library study approach aimed to find out the benefit and challenge of inclusive school as social capital, economic capital, cultural capital, and symbolic capital of children with special needs in the implementation of education for all. Data validation was carried out using data source triangulation. The data was obtained through integrating those from newspaper, journal and book relevant to the application of inclusive education during 2001-2017, and they were then analyzed using Bourdieu's Habitus theory. The result of research showed that the benefit of Inclusive school is very important to realize the inclusive community, provide more responsive, supporting, and empowering service, to help self-confidence and spirit the disable children, reduce stigma and discrimination by community, confirm the importance of inclusive school through elaboration from parent experience and disabled children point of views.
