Ofsted says nearly half a million children in England, labelled with special needs have been wrongly diagnosed. Jo Shuter, headteacher at Quintin Kynaston School, a secondary school in North London and John Bangs, former assistant general secretary of the NUT discuss the reasons for the high numbers.
At least on-in-five five school children in England are now classed as having special educational needs (SEN), according to Ofsted. Brian Lamb, who chaired an inquiry last year into whether parents had confidence in the SEN system, gives his reaction to the claims..
Special Needs Children should go to special schools. "Special" is a term of insult, now, is it not? A bit like "spastic". It is of course a middle class racket to give their children access to the character-deformining process of whingeing for more money and "special" pleading. Notice how that head teacher refused repeatedly to answer John Humphreys when he repeatedly asked her if she gets more government funding if she has a specially large number of specially educationally needy children. What happens in effect is that these middle class specially educationally needy children get butlers to follow them around and minister to their special needs at the expense of the merely average, who are more likely to be useful citizens of the future. This teacher and middle class parent racket of Special Needs children disadvantages them.
Give them more money, get more of the specially needy, ie educationally inadequate. Is that what we really want?
Being the "special" people that the British are, we probably do.

"Reward the inadequate! Punish the productive!" this is the rallying liberal cry.
Well, I guess there is no reason why parasites in turn can't have their own parasites too. When all the parasites in this country are busily feeding off each other in a unbreakable food chain of parasites who breed and eat other parasites, then this country will finally disappear up its own arsehole.
