Discussing ALLFIE’s Manifesto for Inclusive Education

During the workshops that took place at the conference delegates discussed ALLFIE’s six ‘demands’ for inclusive education. Copied below are the questions delegates discussed:

All disabled learners have the legal and human right to attend mainstream courses in mainstream education settings.

All disabled learners have the legal right to individualised support.

Education buildings to be made accessible to all disabled learners.

All mainstream course curricula are accessible to and inclusive of disabled learners.

All education assessments and accreditations are inclusive.

Disability equality training is compulsory for all education professionals and staff

Follow-up questions: what does this mean in practice? To what extent is this happening already? What are the barriers to this? How might we make this happen?
