Project Summary

Research for thesis will focus on the voices of parents in their journey for inclusion in Dubai private schools.  Although I am yet to finalise the proposal (EEDD042), the expectation is to focus on parents whose children have gained a place at mainstream schools, the challenges they have faced and what they have learnt in the process.  Parents have a specific lens on the world of education and particularly those whose children have additional needs.  

Methods will include a questionnaire to parents of children who have gained a place at school and then follow up with individual face to face narrative interviews to capture their experiences.
