We want disabled children to enjoy the right to an inclusive fee-free Basic Education in South Africa

This petition had 2,303 supporters

Raising a child with a disability is expensive, and this is often left to single mothers because of the stigma of having a child with a disability. Although children are entitled to a free basic primary education, schools for children with disabilities still charge school fees. We want this to stop, and for an inclusive education system to make it possible for the hundreds of thousands of out-of-school children with disabilities in South Africa to access their right to a basic education. 

Education is not a luxury- it is an immediate right in South Africa!
