Managing Special and Inclusive Education
Rayner, Steve G.
SAGE Publications (CA)
This book is a guide to special and inclusive education and provides a comprehensive overview of this complex field. Author Stephen Rayner examines context, policy, and practice, and shows how to successfully navigate the managerial challenges involved, while contributing to the way forward through leadership in a diverse field. The author considers the present inclusion imperative with its implications for strategic leadership, planning, and provision. He presents an inclusive style of leadership for an integrative management of individual differences in education, as well as a critical review of managing inclusive learning and teaching in school contexts. Written for both aspiring and practicing school leaders as well as those interested in its development, this book is essential for those with responsibility for inclusion, school leaders in special schools, SENCOs, SEN advisors, and students on SEN management CPD or NPQH courses. After a preface and an introduction, this book is divided into 3 parts: (1) Understanding Special Education and an Inclusion Policy: The Knowledge Context?; (2) Inclusive Leadership, Managing Change and Networking: The Professional Learning Context?; and (3) Inclusive Leadership and Managing Change: Enabling the Learning Professional? [This book was published in association with the British Educational Leadership and Management Society.]
