The World Federation of the Deaf is thrilled to share the International Disability Alliance’s Global Report on Inclusive Education.
The WFD was a part of team of IDA members which developed this report. In this report, the International Disability Alliance, of which the WFD is a founding member, emphasises inclusive education is for all learners, for those with and without disabilities. The report clearly states inclusive bilingual/multilingual sign language schools for deaf children and others who want to learn sign languages are part of the inclusive education system. Deaf learners have the right to quality bilingual/multilingual education in schools where all learners are fluent in their national sign languages.
The WFD has long advocated for quality education in national sign languages for deaf learners.
