As of September 1, 2022, 285.09 thousand people with disabilities live in the Republic of Tatarstan, which is 7.3% of the population of the entire republic. For the Ombudsman, these are not just numbers. These are markers that make us pay attention to important and urgent issues.
Relevant issues of education and upbringing of children with disabilities in a secondary school On December 1, for example, they were reflected and discussed within the framework of a round table organized by the Commissioner for Human Rights in the Republic of Tatarstan together with the Civic Chamber of the Republic of Tatarstan.

The decision on the need to hold this round table was made on the basis of an analysis of incoming applications from citizens, as well as trips to educational institutions.
The Commissioner for Human Rights in the Republic of Tatarstan thanked all colleagues who took the time and took part in the discussion of such important issues in speech. Yes, indeed, the topic is very important and complex, requiring close attention of bodies and organizations at all levels of public authority.
Special conditions for the education and upbringing of special children are not a mere formality. The position of the child depends on the availability of all necessary conditions. And the observance of his constitutional rights depends accordingly on the position.
Within the framework of the round table, many interesting, practice-oriented proposals were made, many forms and ways of overcoming existing problems were voiced.
