Abstract

This study explored Australian discrimination cases involving students with disabilities to identify why adjustments to curriculum were a source of tension, and the further examine what were reasonable adjustments? Despite parents and educators citing tensions surrounding the provision of adjustments in discrimination claims, few studies have examined how commissioners and judges have determined the reasonableness of curriculum adjustments.
