The new Green Paper on Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
, is now on the DfE website for downloading. I'm sure many readers of this site will be interested to have a look.
I've only had time to skim through the executive summary - like many green papers it "might" mean all kinds of things - but it "might" mean a lot of different ones too. It states as one of its key aims to "minimise the adversarial nature of the system for families" of children with SEN- and that can be no bad thing in itself.
Quite how that will happen I'm not so sure, and not sure how the statutory entitlement which goes along with statements of special educational needs, will be upheld if they are abolished - the paper promises both of these outcomes.
