Eva Akins, education law specialist, appeared on BBC London radio and TV on 21 September to discuss the number of special educational needs (SEN) pupils finding themselves without a school place.

Two years after implementation of the SEND reforms began, a Freedom of Information request by BBC London showed that more than 100 children with special education needs have been excluded from school and hundreds of parents have chosen to go through an appeal process to secure their child a place.

Appearing on the Nikki Bedi early morning radio show and BBC London News on television, Eva highlighted the struggle parents face persuading overstretched local authorities to offer schools of choice to SEN pupils.

Eva’s radio broadcast can be accessed on the BBC Radio London website (1 hour and 50 minutes into the broadcast).
