Inclusion: Culture, Policy and Practice: A Queensland Perspective

Gillies, Robyn M. & Carrington, Suzanne B. (2004) Inclusion: Culture, Policy and Practice: A Queensland Perspective. Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 24(2), pp. 117-128.


Schools are currently undergoing a process of reconstructed educational thinking and prac¬tice in Queensland. They are being challenged to review their organisational structures, the curriculum they teach and their pedagogical practices with the intention of transforming their structures, curriculum and pedagogies to ensure that all students are truly included in the school community. This paper reviews the background research that has informed the inclusion movement and the role schools play in developing inclusive education and outlines the specific initiatives that have been undertaken in Queensland, Australia.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
