What is an inclusive school community? How do stakeholders perceive their roles and responsibilities towards inclusive school communities? How can school communities become more inclusive through engagement with individual perspectives? Diverse Perspectives on Inclusive School Communities captures and presents the voices of a wide range of stakeholders including young people and their parents, teachers, support staff, educational psychologists, social workers, health practitioners and volunteers in producing a collection of varied perspectives on inclusive education. In this fascinating book, Tsokova and Tarr uniquely assemble a compilation of accounts collected through in-depth interviews with over twenty-five participants, met throughout the course of their professional lives. The authors focus on how we can ensure all children receive the best education and social provision in inclusive school communities. Key learning points in this book emphasise: links between early life and educational experiences; constructions of inclusion; an understanding of roles and responsibilities; the power of agency in relation to inclusive school communities. The text contributes to current debates surrounding educational policy initiatives, highlighting similarities and differences across people and professions, and illuminating a way forward for the consideration of a broader range of insight into the concept of inclusion and ways this can be achieved. Including both UK and international perspectives that illustrate different stages of the inclusive education process, this text will be invaluable to anyone affiliated with inclusive schooling in a personal or professional capacity.

This 4-volume set brings together seminal articles and key writings on the theme of inclusion and diversity in education. The collection takes disability and special educational need as a starting point from which to develop a broader focus on a range of themes relating to learners who may be marginalised from educational opportunities. This includes for example members of minority ethnic communities, students excluded from schools or who are 'looked after' in public care, and other dimensions of exclusion arising from social class, gender or sexuality. The starting point for understanding inclusive education lies in social justice perspectives, and this forms the basis for the first volume. Volumes two and three focus on research aimed at developing more inclusive practices both at the levels of schools and school systems, and at the levels of inclusive pedagogy, enacted in the classroom and through the curriculum.Volume four reflects the range of voices in research on inclusive education, drawing on traditionally marginalised voices and those of learners in particular. Three cross-cutting themes are represented across all four volumes: a chronological approach, showing how key concepts and perspectives have developed in each area of the literature; identified groups of learners; developing more nuanced readings of how processes of exclusion and inclusion intersect dimensions such as disability, class and race; and, contexts for learning - such as urban education and global or comparative perspectives.

"Inclusive education has emerged internationally over the past thirty years as a way of developing democratic citizenship. Core to inclusive principles are that improved equity in education can only be achieved by eliminating the economic, cultural and physical barriers that currently impede learning for particular students.To strengthen inclusive practice to this end inexorably requires that we attempt to make sense of it in its current form: to examine how it is enacted in educational settings from early childhood, schools, and communities and further and higher education; to contemplate the restrictions that it might inadvertently create; and to consider its effects on members of educational communities.Contributions to this edited collection represent diverse perspectives, yet share a commitment to challenging existing forms of educational marginalisation through policy, practice, theory and pedagogy. The chapters emerged from discussions at the inaugural Inclusive Education Summit that was held at Victoria University, Australia in 2015. They present research that was conducted in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Spain and the UK—illustrating transnational interests and diverse approaches to practice.Presented in four sections—provocations, pushing boundaries, diverse voices, and reflections, the chapters explore everyday practice across a range of contexts: from educating culturally and linguistically diverse, refugee, and/or socially and economically disadvantaged students, to issues of diversity brought about by and through gender, giftedness and disability. The book will appeal to academics, students and practitioners in disciplines including: education, sociology, social work, social policy, early childhood, disability studies, and youth studies."
