“We pledge our support to the goal and principles of inclusive education as a fundamental human right of every person, and the elimination of barriers and discrimination against children and young people with disability in education and in society as a whole.”
To promote Inclusive Education:
- as our children’s right
- as best for ALL children
- as supported by evidence.
That ALL Queensland children learn, grow and play together at school. That every Queensland child:
- is welcomed and supported to attend their local, regular school
- is actively participating in all aspects of school life
- learns with their same age peers
In 2016, the long-term advocacy group Queensland Parents for People with Disability (QPPD) ended creating a gap in advocacy for children with disability. Following a development and leadership workshop hosted by CRU, a group of 15 parents got together to form QCIE in 2017. We have now hundreds of members across Queensland, in metropolitan and regional areas, who have taken the pledge to support inclusive education for all.
STreAms of engagement
As a voluntary association, we collaborate with other organisations that promote inclusive education goals for people with disability. We do not receive ongoing funding from any organisation or individuals.
