Identifying education as a primary agency in which social change occurs, the contributers to this collection address the ways in which committments to human rights, recognition of the dangers of separation and disadvantage, advances in educational methods and technology present opportunities for educators to work towards the inclusion of all citizens. In the first section, contributers explore and explain different European situations. The second section examines the shared EU-Tempus-Tacis Project in the Perm Region (Urals), in which the contributers are all engaged. A third section includes examples of coping strategies and innovations in teaching, both inside and outside the classroom, and the final section focuses particularly on the greater inclusion of young people with special needs becoming part of their schools and systems with an elarged view of the scope of schools and their management.
