Engages with the question of whether the rights of the many outweigh the rights of the few (shout out to @ProfLauraLundy @SELB_QUT presentation at the Child Rights and Wellbeing at School Forum – recording via #SELB site) @tony_s_mccarthy pic.twitter.com/r6OOA6twSJ

“Inclusion (definitions) become so broad that it becomes meaningless in some ways.. [until] GC4 where it becomes about quality as well as set out as a treaty text… and the key document to look at for inclusive ed in practice” @BronaghByrneQUB @SELB_QUT #childrights #disability
