Millenniemålens Bortglömda Barn: Rätten till utbildning för barn med funktionsnedsättning

Reading and writing are two of the most fundamental skills to make it out of poverty. With the Millenium Development Goals, all countries agreed that all children would have access to primary education by 2015. Yet children with disabilities were left behind--prejudice, lack of accessibility, gender inequality and poverty have kept children out of the classroom in many parts of the world.

The report also includes three case studies.
