Sommario/rassunto: "This report found that South Africa has failed to guarantee the right to education for many of the country's children and young adults due to widespread discrimination against children with disabilities in enrollment decisions. Human Rights Watch research in five out of South Africa's nine provinces showed that children with disabilities face discriminatory physical and attitudinal barriers, often beginning early in children's lives when government officials classify them according to their disabilities"--Publisher's description.
