Multiple birth families are disadvantaged due to lack of government policy on classroom placements

Last summer, 672 members of TwinsUK aged 16-50 responded to a survey about their experiences as a twin at primary school. This survey was conducted by Dr Lynn Cherkas (Honorary Research Fellow in the DTR) on behalf of TAMBA (Twins and Multiple Birth Association) who were researching school policies regarding the placement of twins.
