It highlights some of the complex, contentious and contradictory ideas and practices that are currently integral to the system of policy and provision within education and society generally. It contains a wealth of ideas, insights and questions and should be of interest to all those concerned with the well-being of all learners." Len Barton, Executive Director of IDRIS, Emeritus Professor of Inclusive Education, University of London.
"This book is a powerful contribution to the literature on education, disability and social policy in the UK, of interest to practitioners, experts, and parents alike." Patrick Diamond, Senior Research Fellow, Policy Network
