600 000 children with disabilities have no access to education in SA

Viwe Tyolwana
  The National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD) says that it is left with no other option than to litigate in order to get the approximately 600 000 school children with disabilities that are currently not attending school into the education system. André Kalis, specialist of advocacy, policy and children’s matters at the NCPD, says their requests to the Department of Basic Education (DBE) in this regard have fallen on deaf ears.
