From the Introduction by Alex Thorp:

This booklet is a celebration of difference, a collection of proposals for more inclusive schooling and an expression of solidarity with the many other children and families who face ongoing discrimination in the UK schools system. It has been developed by parents, children and early years workers from the Portman Early Childhood Centre, a state-maintained nursery school in north-west London, in collaboration with artists Emma McGarry and Adam J B Walker, and was commissioned by Serpentine Education.

The publication brings together multiple different voices and can be read as a conversation between parents, children, artists, curators and early years workers.
