An Equal Start For All

To mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities Dame Anne Begg, MP joined education campaigner and Paralympian athlete Anne Wafula Strike at an event in parliament to promote the right to education of children with disabilities in the developing world.

Disabled children are the group most likely to be denied their right to education; one third of the 67 million children who are out of school worldwide have a disability. It is therefore crucial to place them at the centre of efforts to achieve internationally agreed targets to get all children into school.
