More than 100,000 students with disabilities across Australia are being denied access to education because of a lack of government funding.

On top of that, many other students are receiving inadequate support.

At the last election, the Abbott Government promised to redress the problem – but students and their families are still waiting.

Today they’re holding a national day of action at Parliament House to lobby the Government ahead of the May Budget

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
