David Roy writes in The Conversation (30.5.16) about the failure of schooling systems and authorities in Australia and elsewhere to properly cater for students with disabilities. He suggests ways that schools might be made more inclusive environments for such students and their peers.
'Governments in Australia, New Zealand and the UK are failing children with disabilities by not providing necessary learning support and by allowing issues to permeate without intervening.
'Schools are deliberately disregarding disability standards through rejecting school places, denying the opportunity of access to activities and offering minimal, if any, support to children with disabilities.
'And research shows that this is becoming more of a concern.'
