Baroness Warnock, the educationalist whose report led to the drive to include children with special needs in mainstream classes, admitted yesterday that the policy had failed and left "a disastrous legacy"... "I think it has gone too far. It was a sort of bright idea of the 1970s but by now it has become a kind of mantra and it really isn't working."
Ah Luke 15:7 - at least the old girl has realised that some of the trendy ideas of the 1970s harmed the children - I wonder how long it is before the State School system also catches on.
For those of you without a handy copy:
7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
