Policy and Power in Inclusive Education: Values Into Practice
Psychology Press, 2005 - Education - 227 pages
The movement towards inclusive education is undoubtedly an international phenomenon, and it has resulted in the development of policy initiatives impacting on schools in all nations.
This informative, wide-ranging text brings together key illustrative material from an international field. It adopts a critical perspective on policy issues, but goes beyond this by making explicit the assumptions that drive policy development. Readers will be encouraged to develop their own framework, allowing them to conduct policy analysis and evaluation within their own educational context.
Students and researchers interested in how principles of inclusive education are being translated into educational practices around the world will find this book an enlightening read.
