EFA PrioritiesSize: 0.56 MB
Education For All (EFA) is a collaboration of disabled persons organisations, family and inclusive education organisations, teachers, and school principals, leaders, researchers and academics in inclusive education, and people from the employment and human rights sector committed to ensuring all students with disabilities are well educated in an inclusive education system. The voices of Disabled people and their families have a key leadership role in articulating the rights and aspirations of disabled students and their family-whanau members in education. We have expertise in this field and as outlined in 4.3 of the Convention of the Rights of People with Disabilities, we are committed to working in partnership with the government. We have developed this plan together to advise and engage meaningfully with government and the education sector because the government has a responsibility to respond to the rights of people with disabilities. The plan is relevant to the education and equal participation of disabled people and their families-whanau from early childhood through to and including tertiary and adult education.
