20080101 Implementing Inclusive Education Commonwealth

A Commonwealth Guide to Implementing Article 24 of the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities

The adoption of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, and in particular Article 24, which requires the development of an inclusive education system for all children, presents both a challenge and an opportunity to the countries of the Commonwealth. This book seeks to provide the arguments for implementing the Convention and gives examples of how such education systems have been pioneered in Common­wealth countries. The task is now to implement inclusive education throughout the Commonwealth.
