Schools understanding inclusion : issues in inclusion and social class
The research on which this paper is based was carried out as part of a three year investigation of the development of inclusive practices in schools. Over this period, a network of practitioners in twenty-five schools in three English LEAs and researchers from three universities worked together to explore what development was possible and to make sense of the actions taken by schools in response to the inclusion 'agenda'. Although each research team developed its own way of working with a local LEA and the participating schools within it, all three teams sought to engage in critical discussions about practice with groups of teachers in schools and to support them in developing more inclusive ways of working. In turn, researchers hoped to learn from a close collaboration with teachers about the possibilities for and constraints on development in the messy reality of day to day life in schools. This paper focuses on work carried out in one LEA in the north of England that was linked with researchers at Newcastle University.
