Committee drafting R.T.E. guidelines on disability has no disabled member!

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: Ministry of Human Resource Development (H.R.D.) apparently, is unable to grasp the concept of ‘Nothing About Us Without Us.’

The latest in its long list of blunders is the ‘Committee to draft Comprehensive Guidelines on the Education of Children with Special Needs under the Right to Education Act’. H.R.D. Ministry could not find a single person with disability in the whole of India to be included in this 10 member Committee.

The Committee is being chaired by Dr. M.N.G. Mani, C.E.O. of International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment. The rest comprise of professionals, and the usual suspects from the disability sector.

The Committee held its first meeting on August 24.
