Motion text

That this House supports the UN General Comment of August 2016 backing calls for inclusive education for children and adults with disabilities; acknowledges that inclusive education can provide both quality education and social development for persons with disabilities, and help develop inclusive, peaceful and fair societies; agrees that inclusive education should focus on the full and effective participation, accessibility, attendance and achievement of all students, especially those who are excluded or at risk of being marginalised; and recognises that enabling inclusive education may require in-depth transformation of education systems in legislation, policy and the way education is financed, administered, designed, taught and monitored.
