Educational justice through inclusion: Promising practices and hopeful futures

Walton, Elizabeth; Elton-Chalcraft, Sally; Sabric, Deborah; Fensham-Smith, Amber and Lander, Vini (2023). Educational justice through inclusion: Promising practices and hopeful futures. In: Plenary Session, BERA Annual Conference 2023, 12-14 Sep 2023, Aston University / Conference Aston, Birmingam.


This plenary brings together scholars from a range of BERA SIGs to deliberate on the topic of Educational justice through inclusion. Our focus will not be on the many challenges to the pursuit of educational justice, but on promising practices and hopeful futures. These practices include anti-racism work in initial teacher education; the value of making things and having fun for children not succeeding in the system; new voices and perspectives in historical narratives; working with mothers of disabled children in ways that celebrate life and disrupt tragedy tropes; and how researchers can work as co-creators of knowledge with communities. We’ll draw together the big ideas that connect these practices, and invite discussion among those who attend the plenary.
