Description - From Them to Us by Tony Booth
In this comparative study, an international team of researchers from eight countries develop case-studies which explore the processes of inclusion and exclusion within a school or group of schools in a local and national context. The book's topics include classroom observation and students' experiences of the school day, and it contains interviews with staff, students, parents and school governors. Through a juxtaposition of the case-studies and commentaries on them, differences of perspective within and between countries are revealed and analyzed. The book draws attention to the problems of translation of practice across cultures. The editors start from an assumption of diversity of perspective which, like the diversity of students within schools, can be viewed as problematic or as a resource to be recognized and celebrated.
