Abstract: This book provides an internationally comparable set of indicators on the educational provision for students with disabilities, learning difficulties and disadvantages (SENDDD). It highlights the number of students concerned, where they are educated - special schools, special classes and regular classes and in what phases of education ¿ pre-primary, compulsory and upper secondary education. It also discusses policy implications vis-à-vis special education needs. The book also presents an analysis of the participation and performance of students with special education needs in the 2006 implementation of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). This volume is the result of the co-operation between OECD and CRELL on the Study on Indicators on the Educational Provision for Students with Disabilities, learning Difficulties, and Disadvantages. This volume presents quantitative and qualitative data for school year 2005-2006 for the following EU and accession countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Slovenia, and Romania as well as non-member economies: Bosnia, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, and Serbia. This study shows consistent findings concerning the preponderance of numbers of boys over girls in a wide range of analyses. There are usually more male students receiving additional resources than females, regardless of whether data are analysed by educational setting, cross-national or national category, age of student, or phase of education. Students with Disabilities, Learning Difficulties and Disadvantages in the Baltic States, South Eastern Europe and Malta: Educational Policies and Indicators will be of particular interest to policy makers and education experts looking for an internationally comparative framework on special education.
