This outstanding collection situates inclusion and diversity in the widest possible contexts: educational, political, ethical and international. This volume is a must-read for all educators hoping to deepen their understanding of the complexities and contradictions of inclusive education.
This important new volume is published at a crucial time with regards to the idea of inclusion in education. It appears during a period when the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is calling for international efforts to promote inclusive and equitable quality education, and lifelong learning opportunities for all. This has brought the issue to the forefront of policy developments in many countries.
This book is far from apolitical, and much more than a handbook. It presents high quality research by a vast array of authors, as well as in-depth critiques of the policies and systems that exist around the world to include, and exclude, individuals and groups of people based on disability, gender, ethnicity, and sexuality. The book carefully draws from a range of expertise.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
