Not quite the same, but still heuristic
There is a Capita 'conference' in Manchester on 7 July that on first seeing I thought might ideally be just the sort of thing that Conductive Education could contribute to and benefit from.
I was wrong, misled by the fog of new jargon and euphemism. It is actually about education for children who have been thrown out of school.
All the same, some of the the issues being covered seem hauntingly familiar...
It does make me wonder, however, whether there are public fora in which 'alternative provisions' of the kind represented by Conductive Education might usefully learn from each other and from others in analogous situations, about common concerns and possible resolution...
I am glad that I am no longer in the field. I might have felt sorely tempted to organise something.
