Half of world's children with disabilities don't go to school
50% of the world's 65 million children with disabilities who are of school-going age, are kept out of the classrooms.
This is because there is little to no money budgeted for their needs.
Stigma and misinformation surrounding disability as well as a lack of data on the numbers of children with disabilities is a major cause.
Most governments think there is no point investing in their education as there is a feeling that people with disabilities can't work, say experts.
Experts say there is a need to give priority to educating children with disabilities so they are able to realize their potential and contribute economically.
