Following in the steps of Bernard Coard's "How the West Indian Child is Made Educationally Subnormal in the British School System", this book too threatens to cause a social and political storm, with its hard-hitting accounts of school exclusion and the realities of racism.Sandra Richards takes a radical African centred look at school exclusions, teasing out uncomfortable historical links and throwing new light on sensitive and complex issues. Her research reveals how teachers who work to be inclusive can themselves be subjected to exclusion. They suffer in silence from what she calls 'professional envy' when they try to operate against racialised punitive cultures.We learn how technology now shapes young people's daily interactions and the implications for their schooling. Through the voices of pupils and today's parents, we are led into the world of the people affected by excluding practices. The author shows how school exclusion harms children, their families, communities - and society. But she goes on to map out the ways teachers can transform their practice and support vulnerable children at risk of exclusion." The Way We See It" provides new information for researchers and is essential reading for practitioners, parents and policy makers who care about education, the future of our increasingly diverse society and who wish to turn the depressing tide of underachievement.
