Abstract

The book is founded on and written around narrative interviews with people with visual impairments. It is about the profound, idiosyncratic, diverse stories of individual experiences of schooling and the ramifications across people's lives. These stories are vibrant expressions of people's experiences. Set within these accounts, from across a time-span that reaches from the early provision of schools for people with visual impirments, are key themes, including the marginalisation of the voice of visually impaired people within the documented history of education - and the placing of these accounts in a broader political, economic and cultural context.
