Professor Roger Slee presented a public lecture on Thursday 7th February 2013 entitled ‘The Condition of Collective Indifference’. In this public lecture Prof. Slee commenced with three important reports delivered the year before in Australia.  Each one demonstrated serious failures of schools to achieve the aspirations of inclusive education.  The failures are not surprising when we consider how deeply woven into the social fabric exclusion is.  Dismantling exclusion requires a better analysis of its structure and culture.
