A Sociocultural Approach to Exclusion

Edward Sellman, Julie Bedward, T Cole, Harry Daniels

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This essay review presents an overview of the issues surrounding young people and exclusion, with a focus on the formal procedure of permanent exclusion from school. In so doing, recent literature on the issues is critiqued amongst wider reading. It is suggested that theorisation of the processes of exclusion cannot be done at any one level of analysis. A sociocultural approach requires attention to analysis at individual, cultural, historical and institutional levels.
