Asking disabled students to stay home if they don’t feel safe is ableist. Action to specifically protect vulnerable learners will show that their safety needs are a priority. This is an opportunity to get it right, after a very isolating year where so many families just left altogether when they realized that no one was going to offer safe and equitable learning to their disabled children and youth.When we ask for equitable access to education, it applies to health and safety too. Creating a safe learning environment for disabled students and staff benefits ALL students and staff, and the broader community.

Nov 25 – Dec 3 – barriers to access in education and all systems and enact the rights of disabled children, youth and adults. Access delayed is access denied!
I was quoted saying that families without current access to supports and services through CYSN are thrilled. What I said was that SOME families are thrilled. This is an accurate statement. What she didn’t share is that I ALSO said many families are anxious about the changes.
