Summary

Concerns about inconsistencies in how the presumption of mainstreaming in Scottish schools is being applied has prompted the Government to review its guidance on this topic. In support of the current public consultation* on the duty to provide education in a mainstream school, this public lecture considers the pros and cons of this policy and asks whether it still has a place in Scottish education.

The lecture is sponsored by Moray House School of Education and the Godfrey Thomson Trust.

[*The consultation is available online and closes on 9th February.]
