Britain struggles with inclusive education

Written Material

In this article Jan Thurlow discusses the inclusive education debate in Britain. She notes that despite the argument that there are insufficient resources, money is still found to continue running special segregated schools. Thurlow questions the human cost of this segregation and gives as an example her daughter Clare. She also acknowledges the stresses placed on parents because of the necessity for them to speak out in order to get proper support for their child to 'live, participate and be accepted' in mainstream society. She believes there is a need for a commitment from the British government in the form of a Civil Rights Bill that would make educational segregation and discrimination illegal.
