The author reflects on the inclusion of students with special educational needs (SEN) in the Irish education system. The author states that the number of support teachers available for students with SEN exceeds the number of teachers under mainstream education. The author mentions the message in Pat O Keeffe's speech, which states that although there are only a few who would defend the advantages of special schooling, he still pleads that there will still be policies for its continuity.
