Positive Alternatives to Exclusion: A Guide for Mainstream Schools
Edited by: Paul Cooper, Mary Jane Drummond, Susan Hart, Jane Lovey, Colleen McLaughlin

Positive Alternatives to Exclusion

Paul Cooper has been working for many years in Cambridge and now Leicester Universities where he has conducted much research into education for children who have behaviour problems including ADHD.

In this book he and the other authors look at how schools can help children with behavioural difficulties and work with them to learn to succeed.

The use of Exclusion is sometimes seen by us parents as the easy option for the school, in some cases this view has some merit. However I am sure that the majority of schools and teachers should and do see this as a failure on the part of the school rather than the child. (Having said that personal experience tells me differently!)

Within the covers of this book Prof. Cooper and the other authors explore the many and varied options which can be employed by schools to avoid the final straw of Excluding a child.

I must say that this book should be a must in every school and be referred to by all staff to see if there are any ways they can change the way they do things to help a child stay in school rather than Excluding them.

I know that most teachers have the well being of all children to consider and that most have the best interests of even the most behaviourally challenging child at heart but I am again afraid to say that we hear so many stories form parents to the contrary that more needs to be done across the board. Having said that the job of teaching has gone through many changes over the past years and there are many, many teachers out there who are a wonderful credit to their profession.
