The organization of teaching improves but critical issues for inclusion persist
During the academic year 2020-2021, the number of students with disabilities that attend Italian schools increases (+4 thousand, 3.6% of the total students).
Participation in teaching improves: students who are excluded from distance learning decrease to 2.3%, in contrast to the 23% of last year. The differences are also due to the new rules that require students to attend lessons in class with their classmates (38%).
Requests for distance learning devices are satisfied in the 98% of cases.
The number of learning support teachers increases. The ratio of students to learning support teachers is better than the legal provisions, but one in three teachers has no specific training and 20% of them are assigned late.
