Celebrating the Special School by Michael Farrell
Book DescriptionThis book challenges the assumption that special schools are a second-best educational option for their pupils. It celebrates the success and importance of special schools within England and the support of local education authorities (LEAs) in maintaining them. Full of examples highlighting good practice, including the views of parents, pupils and ex-pupils who have all experienced a positive special school education, the book: * clearly outlines the principles at the heart of the inclusion debate * discusses the tension in schools between raising standards and being inclusive * assesses the future role of special schools * offers an alternative vision of 'optimal education' for each child. Celebrating the Special School will be of interest to parents of children attending special schools or considering placement, LEA officers, special school staff, staff working in units for pupils with SEN and parents of these children.
