'Inclusion in education:towards equality for students with disability'

Children with Disability Australia’s latest issues paper was released today, launched by Disability Rights Commissioner, Graeme Innes in Sydney.
Inclusion in Education – towards equality for students with disability is a detailed review of the research literature and looks at the barriers and low expectations faced by students with disability, what inclusion really means in education and the outcomes that can be achieved when it is done well. What does this mean for education reform in Australia?
Australia must do more to educate disabled children
Fran Kelly, ABC Radio National, 23rd October 2013
A new report to be launched today by the National Disability Commissioner calls for Australia to lift its game when it comes to educating children with a disability.Despite he right to an inclusive education being enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, it's still common for students to be denied this right in our country.Today's report calls for a review into educational practices and the culture of segregated schools. Interview with Dr Kathy Cologon, the report's author (audio file).
