Featured Reviews

"With the creation of fragmented and pluralist societies we face numerous challenges to what collective identity might mean. Art offers us many possibilities to unite. This critical book expertly begins but does not try to finish the significant challenge to art educators everywhere."

Struggles for Empowerment

Higher Education Stories from East and West

"This book is a valuable companion to all who wish to undertake ethnographic research with participants whose lives are generally concealed from view. Why are their lives hidden?"

From the Foreword by Eve Gregory, Professor Emerita, Goldsmiths, University of London

"As a former ESL teacher and workshop leader, I found myself nodding in agreement page after page of this important and well-researched book. The authors expose the truth that many international schools, unwittingly or even deliberately, disregard the crucial role that a strong, properly staffed ESL and mother tongue programme plays in promoting the language rights of all students and allowing access to the school’s curriculum to help nurture each student’s true potential. It is a compelling argument."

Personalizing Education

A person-centred approach for children with special educational needs

"An utterly brilliant practical guide to the person centred approach! It showcases the central concepts of authentic co-production for sustainable change: agency, collaboration, autonomy and empowerment -- a truly child-centred model for inclusion. A must read for educational practitioners keen to contribute to small world change!"

Danni Lacey-Scane, Primary School Inclusion Manager, Ashleigh Primary School and Nursery
