Sample text

I have been able to draw on pieces of documentary evidence in addition to verbal testimony. This has related to drawings and sketchbook material offered to me during my conversations with participants which, in some cases, included grading information and teachers’ comments. It also included, in the case of two of the participants, old school reports. These additions to the personal narratives allowed for the reflection of an ‘official discourse’ which added a further dimension to the stories. These reports, as reifications of teacher and school-based discourses, provided additional public, reductive accounts as data to be written into participants stories embodying a language of normalisation in grading information and descriptions of pupil performance that could be drawn on in a consideration of the breach between ‘real’ and ‘ideal’.

My own reactions and preconceptions are interesting on reflection. It now seems curious to me that I had worried about an adolescent’s ability to recount his experiences, and I am conscious that this speaks more of my own preconceptions and understanding than the ability of young adults to make sense of their experiences. Matthew spoke easily and confidently. My experience however, was different to earlier interviews with adult participants. There was a distinct power imbalance and my attempt at naturalistic conversation felt inappropriate, particularly in the earlier interviews.

The identification of the ‘abnormal’ is a necessary aspect of those systems designed to identify those who are ‘more able’ or academically elite (McHoul and Grace, 1993:72). Foucault argues that social organisations, such as the compulsory education sector, demand the identification of the ‘normal’ and the ‘abnormal’ (Foucault, 1991). The identification of special educational needs and the expanding discourse surroundding this field appears to be built around the rights of the individual to an appropriate education, yet there is a social dimension to the need to identify and separate different types of learners, since such practices comprise the ways in which hierarchical structures are required to function.
