Disentangling the concept of equality in schools can be a tricky task for those in senior, middle or classroom leadership. This book will unpack ideas of equality, equity, diversity and social justice, providing practitioners and those training to teach with an understanding of equality in order to address educational values and practice. Drawing on a wide range of case studies from schools in England, Wales and Scotland, the authors illustrate the importance of leading for equality with a clear and proactive vision for change.
The authors explore these key areas:
- Socio-economic class
- Migrant children
- Special learning needs and disabilities
This book will serve as a handy guide for postgraduate and undergraduate students on Education Leadership and Inclusive Education courses.
This publication offers a secure approach to leadership from an inclusive perspective which has secure foundations in practice. Very useful to PG students doing the National Senco Award
