    “I support these 6 demands and hope that, in this time of recent political change in the UK, those who now govern us will be more responsive to such proposals.”

    “It is an injustice and tragedy for modern or even ancient societies to segregate a group of people who have not committed any crime in segregated institutions based on their identities as Disabled people. I demand an inclusive education system that values us as Disabled people equal to our peers and recognizes us contributors to socity,”
  • World of Inclusion
    “Support the ultimate goals of the Manifesto. But I think we also need to generate transitional demands that address the current inequalities to build a mass movement to support as part of generating a ground swell in and out of the New Parliament to support the aims of the Manifesto. E.G switch funding of the £2.6 billion earmarked for building special schools to providi8ng resource rooms, training and staffing in mainstream schools to enhance inclusion.”

    “I have extensive experience mostly negative in respect of both my children's education. I have endured a long and difficult battle (ongoing) trying to enforce my rights regarding lawful practice with SEN needs and provision. I absolutely understand the huge problems in this area and appreciate the enormous difficulties people face in trying to access support, hold local authority's to account, enforce the law and advocate for a fair and equal access to an education.”

Education has a vital role to play in preventing Disabled people being disadvantaged as children and young people and then as adults too.”

    “We need an inclusive education system that supports inclusion of all. Inclusive Education can never happen unless we challenge intellectual, behavioural and physical norms informed by white middleclass non disabled peoples developmental standards that determine whose knowledge is valued via our assessment and examination system. The link between education and examinations must be broken - education is about learning to create and live in an inclusive society whether that is.”
  • Elaine McLean
  • Vania Martins
    “Great job!”
  • Kevin Caulfield
    “Disabled people have been denied access to inclusive education throughout our lives, in so many educational settings. Education is not only about passing exams and just learning, its also about being with our non Disabled peers making friends and contacts. Its an education just being together. Because, as Disabled people, we are not involved in the decision making of policy and practice we are not part of developing accessible and inclusive educational solutions to counter our exclusion.”
  • Afolabi Ikutiminu
    “I firmly believe that every child deserves the opportunity to learn and thrive in a mainstream setting with the necessary support and adjustments. ALLFIE's six demands for an inclusive education system resonate deeply with my values of equality, inclusion opportunity for all.”
  • Dave Lupton
    “ALLFIE remains the one true voice of inclusive education and provides the focus for those of us fighting social injustice in education.”
