2018…There is another policy framework in South Africa. My heart is torn between celebrating and crying. I want to celebrate because for the first time we now have a disability framework that looks specifically at the post secondary school. However, the provisions in the framework are not something new to South Africa. Almost all the aims of the framework are in the Constitution. The question which we need answered is why did South Africa fail to uphold its constitution with regards to the rights of people with disabilities. What will be done differently this time, after all a policy framework is just a paper.
