Powering a curriculum for all : a critical ethnographic study of inclusive education

Duke, Jennifer Kay (2014) Powering a curriculum for all : a critical ethnographic study of inclusive education. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This project makes a contribution to knowledge about the successful leadership practices that enhance education for young people with a disability in a Queensland Secondary School. The project used a critical ethnographic approach with a variety of data collection methods and analysis. For example, the use of work diaries, semi-structured interviews, document analysis and observation. These leadership practices were found to be relevant to the development of inclusive schools for all learners.The most powerful leadership practices found were those used by the leader to challenge, interupt and replace exsisting discourse and processes that led to exclusion of students with a disability.
