The first case study in this section is drawn from data gathered at School A, referred to already in Chapters 2 and 3. The organizational issue at this school-where over 50 per cent of students were bilingual and over 50 different first languages were spoken-was well on the way to being settled in favour of a move away from withdrawal towards full mainstream support. It would, however, take the better part of two more years for this settlement to become part of the generally unquestioned culture of the school, and it was a development that still raised objections from many staff.
