Reflections on School Integration Book Description :

School integration means, among other things, that the divisions created by apartheid need to be addressed systematically and systemically.

Rather than focussing on what children and young people 'did' behaviourally to 'get excluded', the book adopts a Foucauldian analysis to concentrate on their place within a larger policy-community which includes professionals and policy makers. It adopt...
