Sign the ALLFIE manifesto

Stand up for inclusive education and put your name to our six demands.

ALLFIE’s manifesto focuses on realising the rights of ALL disabled people to mainstream education with all necessary supports and adjustments within an inclusive education system.  It sets out ALLFIE’s six demands, which would move us from the present situation to a fully inclusive education system.

We believe disabled people have the right to:

  • An inclusive education supported by human rights laws.
  • A coordinated education, health and social care system.
  • An inclusive learning environment.
  • An inclusive curriculum.
  • An inclusive assessment system.
  • An education workforce committed to inclusive education practice.

    “My Mum had to fight the authorities in order for me to attend a mainstream school. So saddened that the fight she had 40 years ago is a fight people are still needing to have today. Parents know best for their children. The default position should always be that all children go to mainstream schools. I am so grateful that my Mum fought.”

    “My daughter has a chromosome duplication. Before diagnosis, school used half day exclusions regularly. I have an MA in Counselling and suspected Autism and told school. Rather than support her they used a school nurse to try everything possible to blame us, accusing fabricated illness and had us under some safeguarding surveillance. We had done nothing wrong, they did not understand her condition. They were forced to accept their mistake on diagnosis. Change is needed.”

    “I home educate my daughter as mainstream school was unable to support her needs, but she is not old enough to go on a waiting list for assessments or support. Many families will not be able to provide this support for their children, who will be stuck in limbo and not receiving suitable support or education. Education for all, or none at all, inclusive education is necessary and beneficial for all.”

    “Our education system should be a true reflection of society- at the minute it is not. At the moment we are teaching children that some people learn in other schools, away from everybody else. This is not ok. Everyone should learn together and difference and diversity should be celebrated.”
  • Zelda McCollum
    “I absolutely believe Inclusive Education is the only way to ensure an inclusive society where absolutely everyone has whatever is necessary to lead the life they desire. Inclusive education would make for a fairer, richer society where everyone will be recognised for all the wondrous gifts and qualities they can contribute to all our lives. We must make this happen.”

    “If we want to see true social justice for everyone we need to create environments from the very start of a child's education which value the strengths every single human brings to the table. Segregating children is not the way forward. Advocating, Education and Empowering people is.”

    “As a (disabled) professor of Education, I have been bashing my head against the wall of wilful ignorance in school and other education settings when it comes to inclusive education and leadership. Only just now I have written a research blog post describing the many problems with school leadership research and 'actions' in real life where people bandying about lovely sounding concepts have no idea of the struggles of disabled kids and their parents. I wholeheartedly support ALLFIE's mission.”

    “Inclusive education is key to the achievement of students who have special educational needs, disabilities and those who don't. Without this the barriers to accessing information, understanding and skills is widened, preventing true participation.”
