About this book

This book challenges the practice of exclusion by uncovering its roots in 19th century social and educational policy targeting poor children. Revealing a hidden history of exclusion, this analysis exposes the connections between the state, the education system and social policy, and opens a space for radical alternatives.

Reviews

"This book provides a penetrating, moving and deeply sobering genealogical account of how some of the most vulnerable children in

society have been categorised, treated and ultimately excluded from education in the United Kingdom ... This book should be read by every person who works within the education system today and by every beginning teacher so that we can start to reclaim our human values." - Gabrielle Ivinson, Subjectivity

"Inequality, Poverty, Education is an inspiring and well-crafted book, which looks at the political economy of school exclusion through the lenses of Foucauldian genealogy." - Maria Tamboukou, Subjectivity

"Inequality, Poverty, Education has powerful, emotionally charged and intellectually compelling examples of working-class children

sent to the poor houses ... beautifully crafted." - Diane Reay, Subjectivity

"This is a penetrating, moving and deeply sobering genealogical account of how some of the most vulnerable children in society have been categorised, treated and ultimately excluded from education in the UK, but specifically in England and Wales... This is a book, for educational scholars of every hue and one that we should ask every beginning teacher to read." - EITN
