This book is about how special education policy and practice is being negotiated within the context of educational reform in two countries. The political climate of recent years in both Britain and the USA led to many changes along similar lines, with a move towards placing greater power and choice in the hands of those individuals with special educational needs. Each chapter provides an overview and comparative analysis of the origins and evolution of specific educational reforms in the USA and the UK. The themes explored include: *providing parents with greater choice *decentralising decision making *making the whole curriculum available to all *accountability *funding the necessary changes.

Marking the 40th anniversary of the Warnock Enquiry (1978) into special education in the UK and capturing the coverage of a public debate on special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) hosted by the University College London Institue of Education (2018), this volume explores the legacy of the Enquiry, considering how it has impacted on policy and practice relating to SEND and inclusion, and how it will continue to do so. Offering historical perspectives and drawing on professional and personal experiences, high-profile contributors, including practitioners, researchers, campaigners and parents, reflect on the approaches taken during the Warnock Enquiry and consider how successfully recommendations have been implemented. Reviewing conceptional and practical territory covered by the Warnock committee, and assessing the current state of the inclusion and education of young people with SEND in the UK, the text sets out broad, evidence-based principles for rethinking inclusive practice and explores topics including: the purposes, contribution and impacts of the Warnock Enquiry rights-based approaches to the education of children with SEND past and present dialogue between mainstream and specialist settings challenges faced by parents of children with SEND implications of the Enquiry for initial teacher training perceptions of SEND in the media the relevance of the Enquiry to policy and practice in the years ahead. This invaluable text will widen current debates by exploring how persistent problems relating to inclusion and the education of children and young people with SEND might be resolved. It is an essential read for researchers, educationalists, practitioners and families involved in the education of children with SEND.

This important book discusses the principles and practice of moving from segregated education to integration and then inclusion in the context of educating children with disabilities in present day India. The actions to be taken are examined at two levels: the level of the system and that of the school. The contributors accordingly discuss a number of important issues including legislative measures, administrative and financial support, equality of opportunities, teacher training, classroom organisation, curriculum modification and parental involvement. Examples of inclusive schooling at work are also provided.

At the time of original publication, special education in Britain was permeated by an ideology of benevolent humanitarianism and this is ostensibly the moral framework within which the professionals – teachers, educational psychologists, medical officers – operate. The author widens the debate about special education by introducing sociological perspectives and considering the structural relationships that are produced both within the system and in the wider society when part of a mass education system develops separately, as 'special' rather than normal. She outlines the origin and development of special education, stressing the conflicts involved and the role played by vested interests, and criticizes the current rhetoric of 'special needs'. Among the issues and dilemmas that she identifies, the problems of selection, assessment, integration and the curriculum for special schools are discussed in details, and the position of parents, pupils and teachers within the system is examined. The author gives particular attention in a separate chapter to the problems and position of ethnic minorities.

This book is about taking disablement out of the experience of children and their families. It focuses on deaf children and uses a valuable combination of what families say and discussions of topical issues on how disabling experiences can be avoided.

In 2005 around 18 per cent of all pupils in schools in England were categorised as having some sort of special educational need (SEN); around 3 per cent had a statement of SEN; and 1 per cent were in special schools. Although many of these children are receiving the education they need, there are large numbers who are being failed by the system. This report, based on over 230 written memoranda and oral evidence from 50 witnesses, considers how the Government can improve outcomes for all children with SEN and disabilities. It concludes that education has moved on in the past 30 years, yet the SEN system is still based on the 1978 Warnock Report and is no longer fit for purpose. The Government should clearly state a vision for children with SEN and disabilities an provide a National Strategy linked to minimum standards and a statutory requirement for local authorities to provide a broad continuum of flexible provision, including high quality special schools.

The book examines how further education for students with learning difficulties and disabilities has emerged from an essentially elitist education system. It explores some of the issues shaping the entitlement to further education for these students in the 1990s. For many people the change that further education and training has undergone in recent years has been interpreted in terms of developing opportunities for student 'choice' and 'rights and entitlements'. Others, more sceptical, perceive a reduction of educational opportunity in favour of market-led notions of 'efficiency'. The book explores aspects of these concerns, including staff development and teaching and learning in this comparatively new area of work; tensions between further education and employment opportunities for students with learning difficulties and disabilities; and a cross-cultural perspective on attitudes and provisions.

This thought-provoking text brings new ideas to the literature of special needs education, an area shot through with questions of ethics and values. This existing literature is heavily weighted towards the articulation of firmly held value positions and the advocacy of particular approaches. New Directions in Special Needs acknowledges the importance of such advocacy but argues that it needs to be set alongside empirical evidence, the touchstone of any attempt to understand the complexities of the field. The book is supported by data from projects carried out by the Special Needs Research Centre at Newcastle University, as well as evidence collected from the authors' professional experience in schools. The authors emphasize the historical perspective of special needs education (missing from much of the literature on the subject) and outline a model of the major forces and processes which shape special needs education at any given time.

Nature and Mortality is a challenging look at some of the major public issues of our time through the eyes of one of our most influential and probing liberal humanists. It is a frank account on where we stand today on such controversial matters as human embryology, genetic engineering, euthanasia and abortion. Warnock's views may seem like a red rag to a bull to some, but her contribution to the debate is always stimulating. Enlivened by autobiographical anecdote and some delicious side-swipes, Nature and Mortality is Mary Warnock at her most perceptive, wise and entertaining.
