Beschreibung"Policies for Diversity in Education" is the second volume in the "Learning for All" series published by Routledge. The emphasis here is on the coordination of practice in schools, regional and national policies, and the power and interest groups concerned with educational difficulties and disabilities. Beginning with a review of the location of power in the systems--including government bodies, voluntary societies, and the unions--it moves to focus on one threatened element of that power structure, the local education authority. Using case material, "Policies for Diversity in Education," explores the experience of families in their relationships with professionals, and looks at examples of changing school policies and the practices that have arisen from them. The final sections offer an important forum for discussion on policies and practices in education after school, and on theories of integration and disability. This reader, one of two texts developed for use in courses on special education needs, offers a new approach to learning and teaching by portraying a coherent picture of the lives of individuals and the ways in which their experience of education can be improved.

Pressestimmen." . . in these days of the national curriculum with its dry texts and sterile prose it comes as something of a relief to read something about the school curriculum and education policy which is both lively and intelligent and based upon carefully thought through experience or "the joys, troubles and conceits of experience in education" as the editors put it."
