Realising Article 24 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities: Case Studies in Mainstreaming and Inclusive Education


Commonwealth Secretariat


As part of an ongoing commitment to support the development of a more inclusive education system across Commonwealth countries, the Commonwealth Secretariat commissioned documentation to support good policy and practice, particularly on including students with disabilities in mainstream education. This has been prepared with the objective of initiating a wider dialogue on inclusive practices for mainstreaming disability.
This document provides examples from 11 Commonwealth countries, highlighting the process of change that is underway in these countries and the evolution of policies and strategies to improve access to education for children with disabilities.
It additionally provides models and self-assessment tools to support policy-makers and education professionals as they work towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 to ensure inclusive and
equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
