“CRU believes that children with disability taking their place at their local school is a critical step on the journey to a full life in community. As we work with families to achieve this goal, we deeply appreciate the expertise and commitment of our colleagues at the Centre for Inclusive Education. Their contribution to extending both the evidence and the knowledge about the benefits of Inclusive Education is invaluable.”
Margaret Rodgers, CEO, CRU
“As a national provider of Out of Home Care for children and young people in the child protection system Life Without Barriers seeks to ensure that each child and young person in our care reaches their learning and education potential.
The C4IE strategic focus on education inclusion for children and young people as a fundamental right, coupled with their research focus that shines a light on exclusionary policy and practice to support pathways of equity, fits well with the Life Without Barriers vision to revitalise education and enhance learning outcomes for children and young people in Out of Home Care.
Life Without Barriers is pleased to partner with QUT’s C4IE to support educational inclusion for all children and young people.”
Dale Murray, Director, Life Without Barriers Education Unit, Strategy and Engagement
“Queensland Advocacy for Inclusion (QAI) is greatly appreciative of the Centre for Inclusive Education’s (C4IE) ongoing leadership and expertise with regards to the right to inclusive education under Article 24 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
Students with disabilities continue to experience barriers that prevent the realisation of this critical human right. The need for evidenced-based solutions to successfully drive systemic change is greater now more than ever and C4IE’s pioneering research plays an essential role in this process.”
Sophie Wiggans, Systems Advocate, Human Rights Advocacy Practice, QAI
