#16 Access to Education for all Children

"The foundation of every state is the education of its youth" - Diogenes Laertius

Stack of books

There has been quite a media storm lately surrounding the issue of access to schools for children with access needs.

Here (at approx 28:30) is a great report on TVNZ 7 show Back Benches, including an interview with an IHC employee and mother of a child with special needs, discussing the issue and how we can go about solving it.

We hope that with the publicity of these discussions, we will be able to encourage empathy and understanding of the right of all children to access education.

What does your local school do to encourage inclusion of all children? What are some innovative ways we can improve access to education?
