ABSTRACT
The article discusses the need to require town halls to provide a broad range of services for children with special educational needs (SEN) to help eliminate the "postcode lottery" in Great Britain. It highlights a report from the Commons' education select committee. The report argues that the government has been presenting a confused message as to whether SEN pupils should be taught within special or mainstream schools.
