Stirring the Waters is a way to recognise Marie Clay in the most significant way acknowledged by our profession—our work in honour of her work. Teachers, school psychologists, administrators, and researchers in multiple disciplines will be fascinated as they gain insight into the scope of Clay's interests and the eminent scholars whose views have been stirred (or shaken) by hers.
The authors of these essays share a common bond—their esteem for Marie Clay. Although representing diverse perspectives, the ideas of these distinguished scholars from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States have been stirred in some way by her work. Each one viewed this volume as an opportunity to express creative and new ideas.
