Russian Schools Need Change

Children with disabilities in Russia face serious obstacles to accessing quality education. Many barriers that can prevent children with disabilities from studying in schools have been found and these include a lack of ramps or lifts to help children enter and move within buildings. The Russian government has said that education for people with disabilities is a priority. Now it’s time to follow through on this pledge to include children with disabilities in schools and in their communities. Inclusive, meaning everyone is included, education ensures that people with and without disabilities study in classrooms together. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which Russia ratified in 2012, requires providing people with disabilities access to local, quality primary and secondary education, as well as higher education. This isn't an issue just in Russia. It exist in many parts of the world, but it simply needs to stop. How could this all be fixed without interrupting current schools? We must get together and help kids who have to struggle to school. Remember nothing is better than helping someone in need, even just helping someone walk up stairs. Every little bit helps.
