`This is an extremely readable volume and those who work in this field will find themselves nodding in agreement. It is hoped that this is not just read by those like-minded educationalists but reaches a broad readership. It gives a wide-angle view of the problem of disaffection, which cannot fail to cause concern. It is hoped that the recent proliferation of government initiatives - learning mentors, 14-19 alternative curricula, and Connexions, to name but a few - will soon begin to solve some of the problems highlighted in this study' - Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties



`Working with Disaffected Students is an interesting, informative and accessible book which should appeal to the target audience of practitioners and policy makers. The recommendations in this book are sound and highly relevant to the target audience. Everyone, particularly the disaffected young people themselves, should benefit from sound research presented in such and engaging and accessible way' - British Journal Educational Studies



`The book stresses the importance of early (and real) inter-agency co-operation, and of good initial and on-going teacher training' - Michael Duffy, The Times Educational Supplement



`I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed the grown up approach of this book, soundly grounded in evidence, and not afraid to talk in terms of a really inclusive approach. In particular, I loved to hear the clear statements on the need for trust between Government and Schools' - Education Review

`
This is a humane and reflective book. One for all teachers, heads and other professionals involved in children's welfare. It should be compulsory reading for the target-setters accountability merchants, as it demands a very different king of responsibility towards vulnerable children and their future' - Improving Schools



`An insightful, powerful and, at times, worrying exploration of reasons for children choosing, or being forced, not to attend school. I feel that this book is a must-read for teachers, parents and carers alike. If the powerful messages are absorbed and internalized, then perhaps new ways of exploring the relationships required with children who become disaffected can be found' - Lynne Westwood, Working with People Who Have a Learning Disability



'This book is a welcome and timely addition to the growing body of research and writing on educational inclusion. It is a rich source of good practice, policies and ideas. Used skillfully, it could be a powerful resource to influence a school's approach to the management of student disaffection. I would recommend this book as essential source of empowerment for all who aspire to improve schools and include all' - Alan J Child, Journal of InService Education
