Current Campaign Work
What you can do to get involved

Welcome to Allfie’s Campaigns Section  
The Alliance for Inclusive Education is campaigning for all disabled learners to have a right to participate in mainstream education.  Despite over 30 years of progress in inclusive education, disabled people are still the only group of learners who do not have a right to a well-resourced school, college or university place.   Also, disabled children under 16 years of age are the only group of children that can be forced to attend a special school against their own and parents’ wishes.  
  
Current Political Situation
Disabled learners' rights to mainstream education are under attack! This is because the Coalition Government has decided that in their view there is a ‘bias towards inclusion’ which must be reversed. The Coalition Government is also committed to the creation of an education ‘marketplace’ where education providers compete against each other for students, funding and resources under the guise of parental or student choice.

    Dear Mr Gove,
    I am deeply concerned that the starting point for the Green Paper is the Government intention to remove the ‘bias in favour of inclusion’. Parents who want their child to be included in mainstream education know from their own experience that there is no bias – in fact many believe the reverse is true. Do not make inclusive education any more difficult than it presently is for disabled children.
    Yours sincerely,
    (Your name and address)

Government Reversing the Bias
The Government commitment to ‘reversing the bias towards inclusion’ is driving many of their education policies and initiatives, for example:

Human and Civil Rights

Support and Provision

Curriculum

Buildings

Assessment and Accreditation  

Teacher training

ALLFIE is campaigning to make sure that all disabled leaners have a right to participate in mainstream education whilst resisting the Coalition Government’s constant attacks on inclusive schooling and ‘special educational needs’ provision planning.
