1 in 20 children under 14 years old has a disability worldwide. Children with disabilities have an equal right to an inclusive, quality and free primary and secondary education. However, education systems and services worldwide are failing to meet this right, both in terms of access and quality of education. Not only children with disabilities have lower rates of enrolment in education, but also higher dropout rates, with poor levels of attendance, progression and learning.

This lecture will shed light on the educational situation of children with disabilities in low and middle income countries, highlighting how the interaction of multiple discriminatory factors (like gender and disability) results in increased exclusion.

Real-time captioning service will be available: as speakers and participants will take the floor, a written text will appear on video, in order to break down communication barriers that exist for people who are deaf, hard of hearing or whose native language is not English.
