BBC Scotland use unpublished evidence to accuse Scottish schools of ‘unlawfully’ excluding autistic children
At 06:27 and five more times this morning, BBC Scotland News headlined:
‘Over a third of children with autism have been unlawfully excluded from school in the past two years’
There you have it – this morning’s daily dose of scaremongering to keep No voters in their pens. I’ve searched and searched but cannot find the report commissioned by three charities, on their sites, on the BBC website or anywhere at all. I’m itching to assess it!
… Anyhow, see that ‘unlawfully’ there? That’s a serious accusation to be making especially when there’s no apparent source to check for it’s reliability and methods. Schools can, of course lawfully exclude pupils.
