But it does suggest that she knows that schools do not support dyslexic
pupils, and as a recent ex-education secretary that is surely
particularly worrying?????????????/

It is interesting to see that it is dyslexia that is Ruth Kelly's
daughter's SEN and that even though they live in London, it is necessary
for her to go to a boarding school
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2087-2535790,00.html   
At least her parents are not expecting the tax payers to cough up the
fees - especially with RK's record of closing special schools when she
was minister at DFES !
Cheers

Subject: Re: [DYSLEXIA] BBC NEWS | Education | Extra help for
strugglingpupils


FROM THE BBC ARTICLES:
On Monday Education Secretary Alan Johnson launches a consultation on 
the plans to ensure all children succeed. Struggling pupils in the later

years of primary and early years of secondary school will get extra help

outside school hours from qualified teachers.

Under the pilot scheme, *children who were behind in these key subjects 
when they entered Key Stage 2*_ _(at about age 7)_ _*or Key Stage 3*_ 
_(starting secondary school) - */and were still lagging behind about two

years later/ *- /_could_/_ _qualify for the extra help. it is thought 
the bottom 5% in each subject of each key stage would get the help.

(Anyone got memories of spending years to get children statemented so 
they could get extra help - then when it is finally granted at maybe 
13+years old, the kids are so disaffected they don't want to know! 
Christine)//

This could potentially amount to one in 10 pupils - although there is 
likely to be some overlap between those struggling in maths and those 
falling behind in English.

Education officials are keen to stress this is not a new parental 
entitlement, but a tool to help children who might need it most.

This would provide extra staff who would give one-to-one tuition or 
lessons in small groups, aimed specifically at pupils who are lagging 
behind.

Those who did qualify would be given _up to 20 hours of tuition in 
either subject or both_, if necessary, outside normal lesson time. This 
could be in the school, out of hours, at a drop-in centre or even at 
home, but would be organised by the school. The _funding will be 
targeted at schools with the highest number of pupils falling behind_ - 
and there will be school funding for 11 to 14 year olds which will be 
"earmarked" for personalised learning
