According to HDI executive director, Olufunso Owasanoye noted that no child of school age should be left behind.

Ms Owasanoye said: “Government should amend existing schools structures to meet inclusive education standard and also to break down all known barriers in the way of persons with disabilities.

“There should be the provision of ramps, electronic interactive materials, braille materials for the visually-impaired and special teachers administering teaching in an all-inclusive environment.

“All tertiary institutions owned by the Lagos State government should have a Department of Inclusive Education. Many children with disabilities cannot go to school because of lack of knowledge of the location of inclusive facilities.” Jamb Result
