QAI provided a submission to the Department of Education, Skills and Employment’s 2020 Review of the Disability Standards for Education. Drawing upon our extensive experience of working with families who have children with disability in the education setting, we highlighted a lack of awareness of the Standards and inconsistent adherence among education providers as key issues.

We drew attention to the enrolment gatekeeping practices that continue to deny children with disability their right to an inclusive education and raised concern about the lack of accountability regarding the decision-making of principals in response to requests for reasonable adjustments.
