In the context of social inclusion, the field of special educational needs is of great importance. This a revised and updated edition of Sheila Riddell's successful work comparing Special Educational Needs SEN frameworks in Scotland and England. The author questions how justice for children with SEN and their parents may be achieved. Questions are raised about the nature of school inclusion, its relationship with social inclusion more widely and the compatibility of the raising standards and social inclusion agendas. Finally, the provisions, practice and implications of legislation prohibiting discrimination against disabled children in schools are discussed. The central contention of the author is that improving educational provision for children with SEN is likely to lead to better provision for all.
