TLRP: Inclusion and exclusion in the city: concepts and contexts
In this chapter, the author introduces an approach to inclusion and exclusion. He adopts a broad view concerned with increasing the participation of all in education and society and in reducing all forms of discrimination and devaluation. Conceptions of inclusion within government policies are examined. The author indicates the extent to which such policies provide a coherent strategy for the development of education which acts as a resource for, or a barrier to, his version of inclusive educational development. This discussion provides a national context within which policies for inclusion in Birmingham are themselves developed as described in Chapter 2. A three-way comparison becomes possible. How inclusion and exclusion should be defined? How is inclusion and exclusion conceived in government policy? How is inclusion and exclusion perceived in the city of Birmingham?
