This publication contains almost 30 accounts written by ordinary
teachers in Mpika Zambia. The teachers have participated in a two-year
action research project, aimed at helping teachers, parents, pupils and
other community members to analyse, reflect on and document their
experiences of inclusion and exclusion in education, in order to work
together to develop more inclusive practices in the future.
The accounts cover a range of issues, from the challenges posed by free
primary education, to the participatory leadership and teaching methods
used to implement inclusion for a range of marginalised children.
The accounts have undergone minimal editing and so offer a unique
collection of writings through which the reader can experience the
voices of ordinary teachers striving to bring about inclusion in their
schools and communities.
A selection of the articles is also available in Spanish.
