A roadmap is a journey from a starting point to an end destination. The end destination we want is inclusive education in Australia, a fundamental human right recognised in the CPRD and defined in General Comment No.4, for all children and young people with disability, without exception.

The Australian Coalition for Inclusive Education (ACIE) has developed Driving change: A roadmap for achieving inclusive education in Australia’ that sets out clear goals and guidance for stakeholders across state and territory government and non-government sectors, based on six key pillars under which short, medium and long term outcomes are identified, as well as key levers that need to be activated to achieve inclusive education in Australia.

We invite all stakeholders, including students, parents, teachers, principals, professional associations/unions, academics, policy makers and political leaders to consider the ACIE Roadmap and how they may be able to contribute to the achievement of its goals and the realisation of every child and young person’s fundamental human right to a universally accessible, quality and inclusive education.

“Our Roadmap is underpinned by six key pillars to help realise inclusive education in Australia and prevent the violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of students with disability.  These pillars are drawn from the evidence base and embed the rights of students as set out in the United Nations (UN) Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).”

The Roadmap for achieving inclusive education in Australia has two key sections:

  1. the outcomes that need to occur, stepped out over the next 10 years; and
  2. the key levers for change needed to realise these outcomes.
