Status of Quranic Education for Visually Impaired Students In Special Education Schools


Visually impaired students have high expectations from special education including the provision of Quranic education. This study aimed to seek the status of Quranic education for visually impaired students in their schools. The objective of the study was to highlight the challenges faced by teachers in teaching Quranic education to students with visual impairment. The study was quantitative and descriptive. The study sample was teachers (N = 105) from the schools for visually impaired students. The purposive sampling technique was used to collect data through a self-developed structured questionnaire. The validity of the instrument was confirmed through the expert opinion (N = 03) and the reliability of the instrument was examined through Cronbach’s alpha 0.716. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were administered to reach the findings of the study through data analysis software SPSS version 21. The findings revealed the majority of the respondents responded basic Quranic education is difficult to teach to students with visual impairment at the primary level. Additionally, it was also found that male teachers teach Quranic education more than female teachers. The study recommends that the teachers should be provided with methods for teaching Quranic education to visually impaired students, including braille literacy and audio instruction techniques.
