BOOK REVIEW EDMUNDS AND MACMILLAN’S LEADERSHIP FOR INCLUSION: A PRACTICAL GUIDE
The debate about inclusive education is long standing and has attracted interest throughout the world. However, supra-national and governmental bodies establish the idea of inclusion as an imperative and the literature is gradually focusing on the pursuit and formulation of the ‘pillars of support for inclusive education’ (Loreman, 2007). The book, Leadership for inclusion: a practical guide, as the title suggests, explores in depth one of the factors that bear on the development of inclusive schools, namely educational leadership. It amalgamates perspectives from the fields of both educational leadership and inclusion and it brings forward their intersection, adding a thorough investigation of this topic to the very limited number of books that deal with it.
