Disability Royal Commission Public Hearing: Education

The Royal Commission will hold its first public hearing at which evidence will be taken. The subject of the hearing is education, which includes the following topics:

  • Inclusiveness in education as it relates to students with disability; and
  • The implementation of existing policies and procedures relating to inclusive education of students with disability, with a focus on the Queensland government education system.

The Royal Commission intends to call witnesses to give evidence of their experience of the education system from their specific position, including, for example, parents and carers of students with disability, advocates, and individuals with professional experience in the education system and experts.

It will be live streamed on the Royal Commission’s website.

The Royal Commission is committed to being accessible to all. It will adopt the principles of trauma-informed engagement to assist in recognising and understanding the effects of all types of trauma and to avoid re-traumatisation.
