Ghana launched its Inclusive Education Policy in 2016, and it states that All Children have a Right to Education.
An estimated 90% of children with disabilities in the developing world do not go to school.
In Ghana there are limited figures available for the exact number of children with disabilities out of school but we know that the problem is critical. A combination of discrimination, social attitudes, poverty, lack of political will and poor quality human and material resources leave these children with disabilities vulnerable and excluded from education.
Denying children with disabilities their right to education has a lifelong impact on learning, achievement and employment opportunities. This in turn has a knock on effect to their economic, social and human development.
