News round up: A third of SEN 18 year olds are not in education or employment
MPs have expressed shock that almost a third of 18-year-olds with special educational needs are not in any form of education, employment or training.
The Commons Public Accounts Committee's report found the system is so complex some families are losing hope, BBC News has reported.
Although the government provides funding centrally, it is left to individual local authorities to decide how its spent.
In response, the government said they are working hard to make the system fairer and easier to understand.
