WITHOUT BORDERS: SUSTAINING AND SUPPORTING INCLUSIVE EDUCATION LEARNING COMMUNITY
In 2006, Ukraine signed the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) which was ratified by the Ukrainian Parliament in December 2009. In March 2010, this legislation came into force and currently serves as national law pertaining to the rights of persons with disabilities in the country. In 2017, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, signed “Amendments to the Law on Education” that pertains to the access of children and youth with special educational needs to educational services supporting the continued implementation of inclusive education in Ukraine.
The project WITHOUT BORDERS: SUSTAINING AND SUPPORTING INCLUSIVE EDUCATION LEARNING COMMUNITY aims at developing and sustaining a coordinated program of training, networking and sharing of information, modeling of best practices, and providing feedback on the implementation of inclusive practices in schools among teachers, specialists, university and NGO staff, and parents of children and young adults with disabilities.
