This book develops a political economy and a genealogy of school exclusion in order to challenge the concept - and its values - at the levels of practice and policy. The authors reveal exclusion to be a symptom of more fundamental issues relating to poverty and inequality, and the role of the state in managing their consequences, particularly regarding juvenile delinquency. Archival and documentary evidence uncovers the roots of exclusionary practices in political and social struggles going back to the 19th century.
The central claim is that competing views of an equitable and just society underlie exclusion. This is reflected in conflicts within liberalism, evident from the Poor Law Reforms of 1834 through to the welfare state and on to the current neo-liberal reconstitution of society according to the model of the market. This book opens up a space for radical alternatives.
