Abstract
In Indonesia, inclusive education has been applying since 2001, however in its application many constraints were encountered and few disabled children can be enrolled in inclusive school. 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. The challenges of inclusive school in realizing education for all, among others, are the difficulty to identify the disabled children's aptitude, no integration between school and therapeutic center for disabled children, limited number of educator for disabled children, limited knowledge of parents in facilitating the growth and development of disabled children and inadequate infrastructures of school.
