Right to an Inclusive Education - New IMM report

The Article 24: The Right to an Inclusive Education Interim Implementation Report has been published by the Independent Monitoring Mechanism of the Disability Convention.

This report focuses on what is happening now in Aotearoa about making inclusive education a reality for all New Zealanders. The right to inclusive education is set out in Article 24 of the Disability Convention. While this report acknowledges developments made in this area, it also recognises that many barriers still exist to prevent disabled people from being able to fully participate in education. To this end, the report provides recommendations to the Government so it can successfully work to meet its obligations under the Disability Convention.
