OPEN LETTER TO THE PREMIER DOUG FORD, THE MINISTER OF EDUCATION AND THE MINISTER OF TRAINING, COLLEGES, AND UNIVERSITIES

 

 

Re: Ontario Human Rights Commission’s Recommendations to Improve Education Outcomes for Students with Disabilities

 

Dear Premier and Ministers,

We write to you to endorse the recent recommendations put forward by the Ontario Human Rights Commission to improve educational outcomes for students with disabilities (attached).

We are a partnership of organizations dedicated toward creating a fully inclusive education system for all students. As you know, education is vitally important to the social, vocational, and academic development of all persons, including those with disabilities. However, students with disabilities continue to face significant barriers in accessing education.

Throughout our own work we have highlighted a number of these barriers. For instance, our partnership recently published a report on this issue, based on research at Brock and Western University and titled ‘If Inclusion Means Everyone, Why Not Me?
