Key issues covered include: law and international human rights frameworks; policy developments for schools and school leaders; educational inequalities for disabled children and young people and curriculum design and qualifications changes for children who are being failed by the current education system.

"This book seeks to identify and analyse a range of significant issues and questions concerning the position and experiences of disabled people in education and society generally. It highlights some of the complex, contentious and contradictory ideas and practices that are currently integral to the system of policy and provision within education and society generally. It contains a wealth of ideas, insights and questions and should be of interest to all those concerned with the well-being of all learners." Len Barton, Executive Director of IDRIS, Emeritus Professor of Inclusive Education, University of London.
