Research in Progress Seminar 2012 (RIPS)
With presenters Peter Blatchford and Rob Webster from the Institute of Education, University of London
In September 2012, the government published draft legislation following its SEN Green Paper and consultation period in 2011. The MaSt Project is likely to be a crucial in providing evidence for both policymaking and classroom practice.
