Armstrong, David – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2018
Behaviour management is an influential educational cliché in Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand and US. In practice, efforts to control student conduct in schools frequently utilise a manage-and-discipline model: a misinformed but deeply rooted set of interconnected notions about how to ensure an orderly and productive classroom.

Wills, Rod; Chenoweth, Lesley; Ellem, Kathleen – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2016
In this paper we explore the experiences of mothers of young adults with Down syndrome as their daughters and sons transition from schooling to adult life.

Bevan-Brown, Jill – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2013
Being victims of racial prejudice, religious intolerance, poverty, disempowerment and language loss it could be expected that indigenous people would be supportive of the Inclusion Movement with its philosophy of valuing and acceptance of all people. This supposition is examined for Maori, the indigenous people of Aotearoa/New Zealand. In…

Ballard, Keith – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2013
Inclusion implies that someone has been excluded and that some are able to prevent others from participation in significant community, economic and political activities. The processes of inclusion and exclusion reflect ideas about how the world is to be seen and understood, about who is to be attended to and who ignored, and about how institutions…

Berryman, Mere; Woller, Paul – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2013
Behavioural and learning difficulties experienced by students from minoritised cultural groups often arise because their cultural beliefs, values and preferred practices differ markedly from those of their teachers and their school.

Bourke, Roseanna; Mentis, Mandia – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2013
There are multiple ways that assessment is positioned within education: as a method for accountability, a strategy to attract funding and an approach to support learning.

Hill, David; Brown, Don – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2013
The retention of "at risk" students in secondary schools is a major challenge to inclusive education policy. Students with non-compliant behaviour at this level are typically dealt with by authoritarian and punitive disciplinary systems that frequently lead to exclusion from school. This paper reports on the successful establishment of a…
