The paper aims to analyse and evaluate the educational situation of pupils with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. For this reason, selected regulations of international human rights law that shape the right to inclusive education are presented. Secondly, the actual educational situation of persons with disabilities during the pandemic is analyzed. Moreover, selected actions of international organizations and national authorities regarding education during COVID-19 are evaluated. The research contributed to identifying the main problems that pupils, parents and teachers had to face during online education. It is demonstrated that despite the fact that inclusive education is guaranteed by international and national law, it was not effectively conducted during the pandemic. This, in turn, deepened the discrimination and exclusion of pupils with disabilities.
