Spotlight on Dr. Teresa Anne Flower

Congratulations to Dr. Teresa Anne Fowler (Assistant Professor of Education) on the recent publiation of her edited book: "Countering the Mythology of Inclusion."

Countering the Mythology of Inclusion
Countering the Mythology of Inclusion is a collection of counter-stories which push against the current ideological understandings and practice of inclusion. The stories shared are ones that educators may not have considered as majority of educators are white thus, blinding us to the power of whiteness in an ‘inclusive’ setting. Inclusion, intended to provide equal opportunities to and education, was wrong from the start. By forcing children to conform into a system which responds to global economic demands, children who do not meet a predetermined outcome are left with a loss of choice, of their identity, of opportunities. This collection considers multiple intersections of race, gender, ability, bodies – each pushing back against the power of whiteness which models of inclusion currently maintain. The mythology of inclusion not only reproduces whiteness, but through a collection of add-ons such as GSAs, schools and educators remain complicit in this reproduction whilst engaging in performances of inclusion.
