27% of Chinese parents surveyed say schools have asked them to withdraw their disabled children

By Catherine Lai


The parents of over a quarter of Chinese students with disabilities have – at some point – been asked to pull their students out of mainstream schools, a new survey has found.


The survey was released in early March at an event organised by Inclusion China – a non-profit which supports the parents of children with mental disabilities – and international NGO Save the Children.


It found that 27 per cent of the parents of children with disabilities who enrolled in regular schools said that they have previously been asked to withdraw their children. The survey, conducted in conjunction with Beijing Normal University and Beijing Union University, included responses from 2,366 parents across seven locations, including Beijing and Guangzhou.
