Today was a step forward in looking at the red tape and barriers that can sometimes surround Special Needs Education.
In my surgeries I all-too-often talk to parents struggling to get the best education for their child especially if that child has special educational needs. In many cases children are put in the wrong schoool and left there or getting a school in the first place is a nightmare. So today we held a small conference at Ripplevale school with parents and KCC to discuss the issues and try and work a way forward.
Together with Paul Carter - Leader of Kent County Council, Mike Whiting - Cabinet Member for Education hopefully we can make some positive progress.
