mainstream schools, promote monitoring through indicators on inclusive education, provide adequate support to students, and use appropriate communication means and formats. Schools need to be properly funded, while at the same time availability of resources should not be a basis for denying access to the right to education for a student with disability. Inclusive education implies more than placing students with disabilities in mainstream schools; it means making them feel welcomed, respected and valued. Inclusive education is built on values that enhance a person’s ability to achieve their goals and embrace diversity as an opportunity to learn. Students with disabilities need adequate support to participate on equal terms with others in the education system. Mainstream schools must provide for an environment that maximizes academic and social development. In its resolution 22/3, the Human Rights Council requested the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) to prepare a study on the right of persons with disabilities to education, in consultation with States and other relevant stakeholders, including the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), regional organizations, the Special Rapporteur on disability of the Commission for Social Development, civil society organizations, including organizations of persons with disabilities, and national human rights institutions. The resolution also requested that the study be made available on the OHCHR website, in an accessible format, prior to the twenty-fifth session of the Human Rights Council. To this end, OHCHR invited contributions from Member States, UNICEF, UNESCO, regional organizations, civil society organizations and organizations of persons with disabilities, the Special Rapporteur on disability of the Commission for Social Development, and national human rights institutions, transmitting a set of questions related to education of persons with disabilities. As a result, OHCHR received 39 responses from States, 12 from national human rights institutions and 31 from civil society organizations and other stakeholders. The study and the submissions received are available on the OHCHR website: .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
