Education for All submission to the United Nations

The Education for All group meet monthly and at its March meeting decided to do a joint submission to the United Nations Day of General Discussion on the right to education for persons with disabilities to be held in Geneva, 15 April.

The resulting submission recommends that the United Nations Committee provide guidance on inclusive education and what this looks like in practice, including clarifying reasonable accommodation in education and requirements for an enforceable right to education.

DPA coordinates the Education for All network.  Education for All is a collaboration of DPO’s, disability NGOs, family groups, school groups and tertiary education institutions.

The Committee invited submissions for the day of discussion about the right disabled people have to an education from Government’s, DPO’s,, national human rights institutions, independent monitoring mechanisms and civil society organisations.
