about

Parenting Inclusive Education is about the lives of twenty-four parents who have, or are in the process of, negotiating the emotional and practical journey in mothering and fathering their learning "disabled" child. The author, writing from the perspective of a women researcher, sociologist and a mother of a learning disabled daughter, questions the very nature of the weak inclusive education discourse and unpacks parents' narratives in relation to denial, disappointment and social exclusion.
CHRISSIE ROGERS is a Sociologist and Lecturer in Education Studies at Keele University, UK. She completed her doctorate at the University of Essex in 2004, after which she spent a year as an ESRC postdoctoral fellow in the Centre for Family Research, Cambridge University.
