Managing Inclusive Education
From Policy to Experience

Edited by:


September 1998 | 192 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`The issues which the editor of the book brings together are really major concerns in the present changing educational scenario. The noteworthy aspect of the book is that each chapter includes a number of study activities which would enable readers to relate ideas under discussion to their own professional contents... the book could be useful for planners and policy makers, and serve as a resource book for persons who are concerned for education of all children in a social setting' - Journal of Education Planning and Administration

Bringing together many professional perspectives on inclusive education, this book explains: policy changes and the role of curriculum and resources in realizing the ideal of inclusion. It reviews different approaches to educational management; and looks at the history of management in special education.

The contributions reflect a period of transition from the special and segregated practices of 20 years ago, to the more intergrated developments of the 1980s, and the wider discourse about `inclusive' education.
