As the overall climate in a school TEACHER DEVELOPMENT AND CLASSROOM PRACTICES 29 improves, such children are gradually seen in a more positive light. Rather than simply presenting problems that have to be overcome or, possibly, referred elsewhere for separate attention, such pupils may be perceived as providing feedback on existing classroom arrangements. Indeed they may be seen as sources of understanding as to how these arrangements might be improved in ways that would benefit all pupils. It is important to recognise, of course, that all of this implies profound changes in many schools.

Others found that students were increasingly open to change. They saw students arriving with ‘pretty stereotyped views about other cultures’ and then ‘very quickly they change their views about this left, right and centre’. The attitudes of students were contrasted with the views of ‘those already out there’ who ‘feel that it’s a good idea but you can’t do it in practice’ because they are ‘constrained by their targets and doing things that are imposed upon you’. This potential clash with the cultures and practices of schools was widely recognised: I’ve had some really interesting debates with our students about inclusion where they take on a lot, then you send them out to schools and they come back quite demoralised because what they believe is not being replicated in the institutions in which they are being placed, and they really don’t know the way forward.

Three thousand dead at ground zero [the site of the 11 September 2001 massacre in New 40 TONY BOOTH York] is huge, but fifty thousand dying in Somalia is not so newsworthy. I don’t know how we develop in our students a commitment to human dignity for all. ’ Another felt somewhat overwhelmed by the idea of inclusion, or perhaps education, as embodying a social and political philosophy: If we are looking at inclusion as a social justice, a social rights issue, then that’s huge isn’t it?
