Carrington, Suzanne B., MacArthur, Jude, Kearney, Alison, Kimber, Megan, Mercer, Louise, Morton, Missy, & Rutherford, Gill (2012) Towards an inclusive education for all. In Carrington, Suzanne B. & MacArthur, Jude (Eds.) Teaching in Inclusive School Communities. John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd, Milton, Qld, pp. 3-38.
Presents international perspectives and understandings of what inclusion means, and explains why it is necessary for teachers to develop their own deep understanding of the beliefs and values that inform teaching. The chapter introduces the construct of an inclusive school community, which is an important focus of inclusive schooling, and explains how the theoretical framework for inclusion informs our thinking, and the ongoing processes of review and development. This framework also informs the stance we take on preparing teachers to work in more inclusive ways in schools. The chapter aims to encourage an appreciation of what it means to be included and excluded, and invites the reader to consider the challenges ahead.
