For the September 2019 conference, we were pleased to have as our opening keynote speaker, the Hon. Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, Deputy Minister for Education in Ghana. Dr Adutwun spoke about Ghana’s journey to an inclusive education system. He has played a significant role in transforming this system, drawing on his vast knowledge and experience from the USA where he ran schools that transformed the lives of many disadvantaged students.

In his keynote speech, he highlighted the practical challenges of making education systems more inclusive, solutions that have been tried, and new challenges for education leaders, researchers, policy makers, and practitioners to address. Dr Adutwum used his address to set the tone for discussions and debates at this year’s conference. Some highlights follow here from our Twitter feed.
