[UK advocacy] ALLFIE to build new coalition on fight for inclusive education

The Alliance for Inclusive Education (ALLFIE) is the disabled people’s organisation leading the fight for inclusive education in the UK is building a new coalition of allies and supporters to end segregation and push for mainstream education for all disabled people.  ALLFIE hopes the coalition will draft new legislation on inclusive education and push for it to be introduced in parliament.

The coalition will look to address the lack of funding and support for disabled children in mainstream settings, which forces parents to seek places in segregated special schools and colleges, and the disproportionate number of disabled children excluded from mainstream schools and colleges for “behavioural” reasons.  They will also look at the links between segregated education and poverty, and the experiences of black and other global majority children.
