"All Present and Correct?" Exclusionary Inclusion within the English Educational System
Hodkinson, Alan
Disability & Society, v27 n5 p675-688 2012
This paper critically analyses discourses of educational inclusion in England through the lens of Derridean deconstruction. Linking Derrida's thesis on writing and speech to presence and absence, the paper contends that inclusion acts as a "suppleance" to previous policies of integration. The paper suggests that, for many teachers, inclusion is grounded upon the forced absence of children rather than upon any notions of equality or justice. (Contains 1 note.)
