Disabled Childrens Right to Education
The Disabled Children’s Right to Education report was prepared by the Commission in response to complaints and issues raised with the Commission.
The purpose of this paper is to:
- provide the Commission with an assessment of the extent to which the right to education is realised for disabled children and young people in New Zealand
- enable the Commission to advocate more effectively for this fundamental right.
The paper summarises complaints and enquiries to the Commission, New Zealand legal and policy frameworks, the concepts of inclusive and special education, the international human rights framework and legal and policy approaches in comparable overseas jurisdictions.
