All children have a right to education. But suspensions and exclusions are going disproportionately to students with a disability. Between 2016-2020, students with disability received 46% of all short-term suspensions, despite making up about 17% of the Queensland school population.
The A Right to Learn Campaign is publicly calling on the Queensland Government to conduct an inquiry into the use of school suspensions and exclusions in Queensland State Schools.
