Parenting Inclusive Education is about the lives of twenty-four parents who have, or are in the process of, negotiating the emotional and practical journey in mothering and fathering their learning "disabled" child. The author, writing from the perspective of a women researcher, sociologist and a mother of a learning disabled daughter, questions the very nature of the weak inclusive education discourse and unpacks parents' narratives in relation to denial, disappointment and social exclusion.
