"We have much greater inclusion in our schools. But we are still not at the position where the choice is always the choice of parents and children. The choice is usually the mainstream school's - not necessarily by refusing entry, which is illegal, but the language and body language can be discouraging - references to not having sufficient resources, or the school down the road being much more experienced and better at dealing with your child's disability than we are. That is frankly unacceptable.
"We need to make sure that unless it really is impossible, the school meets the parents' wishes."
