Diles a las comisarias que segregar no es educar

Con el lema SEGREGAR NO ES EDUCAR, desde el Foro de Vida Independiente y Divertad hemos iniciado una campaña para defender los derechos de los niños y niñas con diversidad funcional a educarse junto a sus compañeros en centros ordinarios.

La discriminación en la escuela es la antesala de la exclusión social. Por eso estamos en contra de la segregación en cualquiera de sus formas. Defendemos una escuela inclusiva dotada con los recursos y los apoyos necesarios, en la que estén todos los alumnos, independientemente de sus capacidades.

Este es el texto que será enviado a Androulla Vassiliou (Comisaria de Educación y Cultura) y Doris Pack (Presidenta de la Comisión de Educación y Cultura)

Dear MEP,

I want to convey my support for the campaign “Segregation is not education” undertaken by the FVID in Spain, defending the rights of children with functional diversity and in compliance with the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (Functional Diversity).

Education is the basis on which to build a pluralistic society, one which respects and includes everyone. Segregating children with functional diversity in special schools is similar to create ghettos and it impairs deeply their fundamental rights. Besides, these actions go against the above said Convention. Unfortunately, there are cases occurring against children who are forced to leave ordinary schools and to enroll in special education centers, against the wishes of their parents, who live under pressure. This is very serious and cannot be accepted.

As our representative in Europe, you should ensure compliance with the Convention and the rights of children with functional diversity. I hope and trust that you will support this initiative.

Yours sincerely,
