Education Will Integrate Disabled (Tijuana Press, 9/19/12, By Daniel Angel/Leonardo Ortiz)

Tijuana, BC - This Tuesday, the first binational forum on the rights of persons with disabilities was conducted with the intention to include this sector with the rest of the society in an atmosphere of respect for their rights.

Federico Fleishmanâ, a National Human Rights 2011 awardee, commented that the difference between both countries is not the infrastructure but the people who are demanding the rights. If they can have a special parking spot, it improves their opportunity to have a good job.

"But how we are going to have access to decent work if we cannot have access to schools," he asked, and added the area of development for persons with any disability is limited by the intellectual scope of their physical conditions. It's a vicious circle, said the man who has difficulty walking, because if there are no resources for education to integrate him beyond charity.

According to National Commission on Human Rights (NHRC) data in Mexico, there are about 10 million people with a disability which limits their opportunities for development. "Disability is only a feature of the person. You cannot define them, we must not stop at the disability, but must reach people and their capabilities", said Federico Fleishmanâ.

Participating in the Forum was the local Congress, provided with reforms that had been made at the federal level. Civic associations that organized the Forum and promoters for all human rights recognized the lack of opportunities for this population sector.

In a law amended in January of this year, the State Government committed to create a regulation within 60 days that corresponded and assured part of the annual budget would place 50 million pesos ($3.9 million US) for 27 programs. http://www.tijuanapress.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=7680:educacion-para-integrar-a-discapacitados&catid=1:locales&Itemid=50
