'If you are looking for intellectual rigour and argument informed by research, Rosemary's chapters will match your brief... The value of this book is one of raising awareness and stimulating debate around diversity in schools and other educational establishments.' --Sanford Lakoff 'This book poses questions for all professionals in the Children's Workforce and Extended Provision, including those supporting special and behavioural needs such as teachers and mentors . Moving personal accounts by vulnerable children, young people and families allow unique insights into the challenges they face. Professor Rosemary Sage directly addresses support strategies for 'low achievers' that are more than just effective but enable them to shine - and contribute to society their many special gifts.' Jennifer Rogers, Associate Professor of Education, Liverpool Hope University, UK '... a welcome, down-to-earth account of understanding discourse, diversity and discrimination in the post-modern society. The narrative approach of the authors takes us through how life is experienced and developed in a multicultural global world and how to accommodate these different cultures and religions within the education system and society.' Dr Ram V Seth, Consultant Psychiatrist, Director of Medical Education and Barrister at Law, UK
