Implementing Inclusive Education

A Commonwealth Guide to Implementing Article 24 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

image of Implementing Inclusive Education
Inclusion in education is a process of enabling all children to learn and participate effectively within mainstream school systems, without segregation. It is about shifting the focus from altering disabled people to fit into society to transforming society, and the world, by changing attitudes, removing barriers and providing the right support.



The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities requires the development of an inclusive education system for all. This revised and expanded second edition of Implementing Inclusive Education examines the adoption of the Convention and provides examples, both through illustrated case studies and on the accompanying DVDs, of how inclusive education systems for all children have been established in pockets throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.



The message is clear: it can be done. The task is now to implement inclusive education worldwide.

Conclusion

The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities requires all states parties, educationalists, parents of disabled children and disabled people’s organisations to be actively aware of the changing paradigm around disability. There has been a shift from viewing the problem as one that is caused by the disabled person to identifying the barriers to disabled people’s inclusion in society on every level, and then enacting laws, policies, procedures and practices to change the situation.
