Unlike other books looking at inclusion and exclusion, this book draws on the experiences of the full circle of people involved in and affected by exclusion. This, therefore, is the first book to integrate the voices of an excluded child, the parents of excluded children, the voices of teachers, remaining pupils and researchers, with their reflection on inclusion and exclusion in the context of schools that do not cater well for diversity. The contributors, and issues raised, are international, giving the reader everything necessary for considering concepts and practices across countries and cultures, and highlighting ways in which schools might bring down the barriers to participation and learning.
