In the context of social inclusion, the field of special educational needs (SEN) is of great importance. This revised and updated edition of Sheila Riddell's successful work compares SEN frameworks in Scotland and England. The author examines how justice for children with SEN and their parents may be achieved. Questions are raised about the nature of school inclusion, SEN's relationship with social inclusion, and the compatibility of the raising standards and social inclusion agendas. 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.
