Should all children be included in the same schools? Or should some be 'excluded', or at least offered separate provision so that their needs may be more successfully met elsewhere? 'Excluded' is an emotive term. In the context of education, what does it mean? In 2005 the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain published a pamphlet by Baroness Warnock in which she expressed serious concerns about the effects of her report on special education, published almost thirty years earlier. Not least of these was the suffering of some SEN children in mainstream schools, who had nowhere else to go since the closure of special schools in their area. Baroness Warnock's concerns raised a storm with the press and with many educationalists and disability groups.
