Special Needs: Inclusion

Description

This video airs arguments from teachers, campaigners and parents both for and against inclusion on practical and human rights grounds.

Almost 30 years ago, Baroness Mary Warnock published a groundbreaking report that helped open the doors of mainstream schools to children with special educational needs (SEN).

But now, in an apparent U-turn, Baroness Warnock has re-opened the controversial debate on where SEN children should be educated. Baroness Warnock is interviewed in this video, revealing what lies behind her recent concerns.

Labour government policy now advocates educating only those with the most severe learning difficulties in special schools, allowing 89 per cent (some 1.3 million) of children with special needs to be taught in the mainstream primary and secondary system.
