Special Educational Needs and Ethnicity


There have been concerns for some time about the attainment and progress of children from minority ethnic groups in the UK. One specific concern has been about their overrepresentation among pupils identified as having special educational needs (SEN). This 169–page research for the DfES considers the over and under representation of minority ethnic groups in different categories of special educational need compared with White British pupils. The study comprised four main strands of evidence: a review of the literature; an analysis of the 2005 PLASC dataset; a survey of LAs; and focus groups of senior LA officers.
