Debates the controversial approaches to categorising learners such as dyslexia
Raises doubts about the preoccupation with quasi-mathematical scrutiny and the neglect of ethical reflection about education
Discusses the possible grounds for concern, without exaggerating their similarities or offering sweeping judgements
Includes contributions from empirical researchers and philosophers, including Usha Goswami, Howard Gardner, Julian Elliott, David Bakhurst, John White and Christopher Winch
