Barton, Len
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v31 n5 p643-650 Sep 2010
A special issue of the "British Journal of Sociology of Education" has been devoted to an examination of Disability and Inclusive Education. The authors of the papers in this issue have all made important contributions to the advancement of knowledge and understanding in these fields of study. Overall, they have provided a comprehensive, valuable series of informed insights into a range of important ideas, issues, questions and agendas for future developments. They have also provided a relevant resource of references for readers to further explore. When thinking about any personal contributions to these concerns, the author is clearly reminded, on the one hand, of the limited nature of such work and how little effective conceptual, theoretical, empirical and applied nature of such understanding has been achieved, and, on the other, how much work still needs to be undertaken for real changes to be realised and maintained. In this brief response, the author offers a selection of concerns that have been reinforced for the author in the reading of these papers, and are part of the urgent tasks that need to be seriously and critically explored.
