This chapter shows that bias towards special schools is due to the complex relationship that has evolved between social care law and children's education. It provides an analysis of England and Wales that determines how the policy and legislative frameworks of education and social care for the last twenty years have taken divergent approaches. This analysis also shows that these divergent approaches have restricted the progress of inclusive education. The chapter does not include a narration of the debates that surround the definition of inclusive education.

Keywords: special schools; bias; social care; policy frameworks; legislative frameworks; divergent approaches; inclusive education
