Special Educational Needs Tribunal--A New British Innovation.
Khan, Anwar N.; Bloomer, Sheila
Journal of Law and Education, v26 n2 p101-13 Apr 1997
Dissatisfaction with the previous special-education appeals system led Britain to adopt the 1993 Education Act, which created the Special Needs Tribunal (SENT). The tribunal aims to provide consistency of treatment within and among local education authorities and to avoid the confusion caused by varying and inconsistent LEA policies and decisions. SENT could be jeopardized by inadequate funding. (76 references) (MLH)
