Example text

By yielding the definition of a complex social phenomenon to those who frame legislation we limit our scope for understanding and responding to it. Attention has been focused on two features of the ‘rise’ in disciplinary exclusion; its relationship to competitive pressures in the education system and the over-preponderance of black, male, African-Caribbean pupils in the exclusion statistics. Both of these issues draw attention away from the details of exclusion events at the point of breakdown in the relationship between school and pupil towards the processes of devaluation which may precede it.

I will examine, in some detail, the separation of ‘disciplinary’ and ‘special needs exclusions’ in the minds of practitioners and academics and reflect on why this happens. I will ask in the light of these discussions how exclusion might be productively defined, and at the consequences this might have for the way exclusion is measured. I will conclude the chapter by asking what difference my change in emphasis makes to research and practice on exclusions. WHO IS INCLUDED IN AND EXCLUDED FROM EXCLUSION STATISTICS?

As one option closes another is chosen. The over-representation of African-Caribbean boys is a concern because exclusion of any type is disruptive of education and stigmatising. There is a long-standing debate about whether the establishment of special schools or their continuation for any pupils can be considered as benign. While a variety of groups in society may choose to meet and learn together, compulsory segregation is never benign; it is always associated with devaluation. Segregation in special schools on the basis of low attainment can be seen as part of a selective system based on reward for success and stigmatisation for failure.
