How far from the margins? Reflections of an EP on a teaching experience with a child at the margins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The drive to improve educational standards has occurred just when anxieties are soaring about the consequences of exclusion. At the same time, international guidance and UK legislation carry exhortations to consider both the rights of children and also their views. Professionals working with children need to be able to adjust to the conditions imposed by the frequent policy and legislative changes by developing appropriate new approaches and practices. This is a book for teachers, educational psychologists, workers with looked after children and policy makers.
