Research Opportunity: Disibility Discrimination
Peta Spyrou is a doctoral candidate with Adelaide Law School. Peta's research explores how equal opportunity commissions, and other relevant bodies, across South Australia, Victoria and federally, deal with disability discrimination complaints for primary or secondary students with disability-related challenging behaviour.
Have you lodged a disability discrimination complaint for a student with behavioural issues? Was the student in primary or secondary school at the time? Peta Spyrou, a PhD researcher at the University of Adelaide, would like to talk to you.
Can you join her for an online conversation about your experience? It will take about an hour.
You need to have:
- Lodged or represented a primary or secondary school-aged student with behavioural issues connected with disability;
- Lodged this matter between financial years 2014-15 and 2018-19;
- Lodged the complaint to a ‘relevant body’.
- For the purposes of this research, a ‘relevant body’ includes:
- the Equal Opportunity Commissions in South Australia, Victoria or federally,
- Tribunals (the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, the South Australian Employment Tribunal or the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal);
- Ombudsman bodies in South Australia or Victoria;
- Education Departments in South Australia or Victoria; or
- the Victorian Independent Office for School Dispute Resolution.
