This valuable new book provides an in-depth treatment of equality, drawing on research and literature, and illuminating examples of practice in several UK schools. Jacky Lumby and Marianne Coleman have been researching this issue for more than two decades and this important book demonstrates their deep understanding of, and engagement with, many key dimensions of equality and inequality in schools.
This very accessible book takes complex and challenging ideas and makes these practical and accessible without being patronizing. Lumby and Coleman are deeply reflective and open about the issues covered, and explain that there are no ‘magic answers’ in seeking solutions in the endeavours of educators to address issues of equality. They are also unflinching in urging us to reflect on our own practices and predispositions critically, which may, albeit unconsciously, be adding to misunderstandings, misconceptions and socially unjust behaviours.
Lumby and Coleman have an engaging and accessible style. A unique feature of this book in the inclusion of various case studies that illustrate how the complex issue of equality is addressed in different types of schools throughout the United Kingdom... The greatest utility of this book may be its potential to spark discussion and motivate readers to consider changes that may make their school environments fairer.
This publication offers a secure approach to leadership from an inclusive perspective which has secure foundations in practice. Very useful to PG students doing the National Senco Award
