An enquiry into special education
'It's really another form of apartheid. What we are looking at is an issue of segregation, not integration.'
Britain has developed a separate educational system for disabled children, but is it necessary? The 1981 Education Act promised that handicapped children could integrate into ordinary schools, and pledged a greater say for parents in the choosing of those schools. But, five years on, the Act continues to spread confusion and contention, with local education authorities failing to keep to the spirit of the law.
Kevin Mulhern reports on the current state of education for children with disabilities, and asks if special schools will ever disappear, and if the integration of children with mental or physical handicaps is possible.
John Mills chairs a studio discussion with Malcolm Gledhill , Principal Educational Psychologist for Cheshire
County Council; John Mann , Chief Education Officer for
Harrow; and Philippa Russell of the National Children's Bureau. Listeners are invited to phone in with questions and comments on [number removed]Linesopenfrom 7.0pm Producer MICK WEBB (E)

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
