Disability-responsive inclusive education policy and systems mapping (CIES 2018 presentation)

This presentation was presented as part of the panel, The Equity Initiative: Prioritizing Disabilities – Sharpening Focus on Inclusive Education Policy and Practice, at CIES 2018.

The objective of the Education Equity Research Initiative’s Disability Task Team is to improve the availability and quality of data on the prevalence, access, and achievement of children with disabilities. To better understand how education systems are serving students with disabilities and what the impacts of those efforts are, the Task Team identified inclusive education approaches and outcomes as an important research priority, and established a dedicated working group pursuing research in this area. This paper presents the results of activities undertaken by this working group.
