Summary "Research on special education has tended to focus on technical and professional aspects of provision and matters of placement. The voice of the pupil with special educational needs has tended to be silenced by professional discourses, reducing him or her to a passive recipient of specialist provision. This book attemps to undo some of this, by featuring the accounts of eleven pupils with special needs and their mainstream peers." "Julie Allan uses Foucault's 'box of tools' to analyse the pupil accounts, and the themes of the 'technologies of the self' and 'governmentality' from his work are developed in new ways." --Book Jacket
