EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND--Under new legislation, school councils must work to make all buildings, furniture, computers, and learning materials accessible to students that have disabilities.
The new law is an important step, say people who advocate for including pupils with disabilities in local schools.
A large portion of £21 million in "special needs" money announced last month is to go toward making schools more accessible.
But some say that it would cost as much as £1 billion to make the changes that are needed.
The Education Minister said people may have to accept the fact that not all of the modifications would be done right away.
