This study ascertained whether or not, Lagos State Government, Nigeria is practicing the inclusive system of education for persons with visual impairment. Descriptive sur-vey method was adopted. The participants were all the children with visual impairment in the 31 designated “inclusive schools”. An interview comprising of 25 self- con-structed items was designed. Focused group discussion was held for teachers and the pupils. Findings revealed that there was dearth of professionals, teachers’ welfare was very poor, infrastructure were in disrepair and inadequate. The findings further re-vealed that the “inclusive schools” in Lagos State were not actually inclusive in its real sense. It was concluded that Lagos State Government’s practice of “inclusive educa-tion” was still very far from what it should be. It was recommended that Lagos State Government, Nigeria should practice inclusive education in line with best international standard and practises.
