J.A. Hobson, a British theorist, and Vladimir Lenin, the Russian revolutionary and leader of the Bolshevik(later Communist Party) in the Soviet Union, both criticized late 19 century imperialism as a capitalist conspiracy by “big business” to subjugate colonies for pure economic gain. Colonies provided cheap raw materials and guaranteed markets for European and U.S. “trusts and monopolies”. But what about ideological factors such as the idea of the “Civilizing Mission” or Manifest Destiny? By the late 19century, the U.S. joined other European powers in constructing an empire.

According to Equality and Diversity UAS (2014) specific learning difficulties will also now be included under the EA. These will include Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The EA will require schools to assess these students and make the necessary provision under SEN. Therefore the EA will have had an impact upon the students who will be assessed as disabled and need SEN adjustments within schools.

A long-term is defined as a disability where effects last at least 12 months Temporary conditions which are likely to last less than 12 months will not be covered by the EA. These could include temporary infection or a broken limb. However, some adjustments may be made within school to accommodate such conditions. Normal day-to-day activity includes activities which are carried out by most people on a fairly regular and frequent basis, for example using the stairs. How does the EA define Disability and Special educational Needs (SEN)? One important aspect of the EA (2010) is that not all children who are defined as disabled will have Special Educational Needs. For example, those with asthma arthritis or diabetes may not have SEN but may have rights under the EA. The EA (2010) definition for schools for disabled students comes from the EA and the definition for SEN students comes from the Education Act 1996. The impact on schools will be that there will be a significant overlap between the two groups of children. A child may fall within one or more of the definitions.
