Housing Need and the Need for Housing

release date: Apr 02, 2020
Housing Need and the Need for Housing
First published in 1998, this book addresses a central issue in housing: that of ''need'' and how to meet it. Need refers either to individual household circumstances or to the aggregate requirement for new (social and market) housing. The book develops a new policy mechanism to address the present fragmented policy situation. The mechanism now used to allocate finance and new social housing numbers is complex and ineffective in terms of meeting needs. The book''s proposals are rooted in clear definitions of the key terms, especially that of housing need, which suffers from lack of any clear definition. The analysis is developed using a large database of survey information covering England and Wales. The proposed policy mechanism should be of great interest at a time when radical change to local government are being considered. The proposed mechanism would greatly increase value for money of public time and expenditure on (planning for) social housing.

release date: Nov 05, 2013
The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator's Handbook
In September 1994, the Code of Practice on the Identification and Assessment of Special Educational Needs came into force, and with it a major increase in the expectations placed on teachers in mainstream schools, in particular on the SEN coordinators. This handbook discusses the implications for schools and gives practical guidance on how to implement the code effectively. Throughout, the book provides: * Further information, expanding upon that given in the Code * Examples * Ideas for dealing with SEN in schools * Checklists * Proformas for photocopying and direct use in schools The book begins by explaining and expanding on the Code of Practice, setting it in the context of recent developments including the Education Reform Act and OFSTED criteria for evaluating policy and provision for children in SEN. It then goes on to provide guidelines for implementing the Code of Practice at each of the five stages which it specifies and discusses issues which are raised by this. Specific chapters cover: * Identifying and assessing SEN within the school * Liaison with outside specialists * Statementing * Annual reviews * Knowledge needed by classroom teachers of children with SEN * Implications and issues at different stages of the education system * Parental involvement * Future challenges The book will be of particular interest to special needs coordinators, but will also be of value to anyone else working with children with SEN, including class teachers, heads, advisers, governors, educational psychologists and education welfare officers.

Goodnight Malaysian 370

Goodnight Malaysian 370
The book by New Zealand pilot Ewan Wilson and top journalist Geoff Taylor presents compelling evidence about what actually occurred in the final hours of flight 370, some of it based on new interviews with family members of pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah. Wilson describes MH370''s loss as probably the greatest mystery in the history of aviation. "The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 captured the world''s attention and shocked everyone." "Our book takes you to Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8 and brings together the lives of passengers and crew who ultimately met their fate on board what should''ve been a routine flight to Beijing on a well respected airline operating a state-of-the-art airliner with a near faultless record." "For the first time we present a detailed analysis of the flight, the incredible route it took, and who we believe was in charge of the aircraft as it plunged into the Indian Ocean." -- Backcover.

Enhancing Safety

release date: Jan 01, 1998
Enhancing Safety
A woman of considerable spirit, Erica is rather reluctant to move into Leicester Gardens. There she is surprised by what she finds: ambition and rivalries ruling the dining room, and yet there are possibilities for new friendships, too. One of these friendships is with the elegant Maria. Though her marriage survived both a war and an affair, Maria is haunted still by her memories of that dramatic time. Some of these she will recount, and others she keeps secret. "A beautifully but unobtrusively honed style, a marvellous ear for dialogue, a generous understanding of the complex waywardness of men and women." - Andrew Riemer
