Towards a disability inclusive education

20 Jan 2016
Background paper for the Oslo Summit on Education for Development July 7th, 2015

Disability continues to be one of the primary causes of educational disadvantage and exclusion, creating the largest single group of girls and boys who remain out of school. Even in those countries close to achieving universal primary enrolment, children with disabilities are still not in school, accessing opportunities to meaningful employment and on sustainable routes out of poverty.

As preparation for the Oslo Summit on Education for Development, addressing the Unfinished Agenda Delivering Quality Education for All, to be held on 7 July 2015, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs appointed an expert group in March 2015 to prepare a paper on mainstreaming disability in education.

The paper covers the four topics of the Oslo Summit: investment in education, quality of learning, education in emergencies and girls’ education.

Authors of the report:

Ann-Marit Sæbønes (leader of the working Group)

Rosangela Berman, Bieler Nafisa Baboo, Louise Banham Nidhi Singal, Catherine Howgego, Charlotte Vuyiswa McClain-Nhlapo, Trine Cecilie Riis-Hansen and Grant Angus Dansie (Secretary)
