create a bureaucratic nightmare for councils, Scottish education directors have warned.
The Additional Support for Learning Bill plans to replace the existing system of records of children with special educational needs with a framework of support for children who require extra help for whatever reason.
But education directors say that by caving into pressure from parents for greater regulation, the government has increased the administrative burden on councils.
'There is a danger this could turn into a bureaucratic monster,' he said.
'The government is in a no-win situation between parents seeking the protection of every dot and comma being set out in a quasi legal document and councils seeking less bureaucracy.'
