In 2015 the Yogyakarta Local Government determined four sub-districts, Wirobrajan, Gondokusuman, Kotagede and Wirobrajan as pilot projects of an inclusive city. An inclusive city is a city where all resident is able to live together safely and comfortably, and have equal opportunities to fully participate in the spatial, social and economic dimensions without discrimination and exclusion. This research aims to find out whether the existing development is in line with the principles of the inclusive city by looking for public perceptions of development policies that have been running. It can be analyzed from people’s perceptions of development in the city of Yogyakarta from the perspective of three dimensions of inclusive cities which are divided into several indicators. In addition, it is important to know the perceptions of stakeholders and parents regarding the policy of the Yogyakarta Local Government that has adopted the concept in the education sector since 2008 in terms of inclusive education. This research methodology uses mixed methods, one method is Importance Performance Analysis (IPA) This method is used to find out which indicators are performing well and indicators that need to be improved and need corrective action as soon as possible. IPA is not only to test the performance of indicators but also the importance of indicators as a determining factor in community satisfaction.
The results showed that the importance level was 4.49 and the performance level was 3.69. With the score of performance still below the score of importance, it is concluded that the inclusiveness level of Kota Yogyakarta is still not reaching 100%. It can be concluded that development performance has not met the importance of the community. Therefore, indicators in the A and C quadrants need to be improved. From this study, it was also concluded that only 53% of parents were satisfied with the inclusive education program, while 38% stated enough, and 9% were dissatisfied. In addition, based on teacher perceptions, stating that output in terms of facilities, the number of professional teachers and continuous assessment of children ‘s conditions and educational performance are remarkably insufficient
