As part of the Saskatchewan Association for Community Living’s (SACL) Inclusive Education initiative, the SACL in collaboration with the Office of the Children’s Advocate, is hosting a series of informative Education Advocacy Workshops to help parents, educators, and community members learn about children’s educational rights in Saskatchewan.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll also be posting some important perspectives written directly by workshop leaders and long-time education advocates Elaine Caswell and Louise Burridge. We encourage all of you to follow along and join us for our one of our workshops. Our next stop will be in Weyburn on May 15th, 2018.
