Title: Challenging Exclusion: Promoting Equity and Inclusion for All
Abstract: Recent international agreements which have led to the Education for All Goals, have been instrumental in promoting debate around what it means to be included in education at all levels. Whilst the UK has a record of developing policy for the promotion of equal opportunities and rights, there remains a challenge for many young people who continue to be denied access to appropriate learning opportunities. In this session I will consider some of the factors that lead to exclusion and marginalisation and propose those practices that may be adopted across the education sector in order to promote a more equitable education for all learners.
