How we organize children by ability in schools is often rooted in ableism.
Ability is so central to schooling—where we explicitly and continuously shape, assess, measure, and report on students' abilities—that ability-based decisions often appear logical and natural. However, how schools respond to ability results in very real, lifelong social and economic consequences. Special education and academic streaming (or tracking) are two of the most prominent ability-based strategies public schools use to organize student learning. Both have had a long and complicated relationship with gender, race, and class.
In this down-to-earth guide, Dr. Gillian Parekh unpacks the realities of how ability and disability play out within schooling, including insights from students, teachers, and administrators about the barriers faced by students on the basis of ability. From the challenges with ability testing to gifted programs to the disability rights movement, Parekh shows how ableism is inextricably linked to other forms of bias. Her book is a powerful tool for educators committed to justice-seeking practices in schools.

OK, makes some valuable points
The book makes some valuable points about special education, tracking, etc. Too theoretical and repetitive of theoretical formulations, not much in the way of concrete examples. It strains too conform to intersectional orthodoxy: lots of mention of gender minorities, but since when are gays and lesbians academic underachievers? It is mentioned that boys suffer disproportionately from ableism, but no mention is made of how this undermines the idea that white strait males are the top predators of the intersectional pyramid. It is mentioned that East-Asian immigrants are great benificeries of meritocracy, but somehow that has no impact on the assumption that the system is rigged to preserve 'white supremacy".
