Segregation Statistics: English LEAS, 1988-91.
Statistics are presented indicating that, between 1988 and 1991 in England, there was a 2.05% increase in segregation of children with disabilities aged between 5 and 10 years. Over the same period, there was a 2.12% decrease in segregation of children aged 11 to 15. The statistics also indicate that children's chances of being integrated into mainstream schooling vary enormously depending on the local education authority (LEA) in which they live. Statistics are examined in terms of the highs and lows of segregation, increasing and decreasing levels of segregation, and primary versus secondary level students. Three tables provide data, by local education authority, on the percentage of segregated students aged 5 to 15, aged 5 to 10, and aged 11 to 15. Possible explanations for the increased segregation are noted, and the methods used in analyzing the statistics are outlined. (JDD)
