There is no such thing as special education - only education

Written Material

This article adds weight to the argument that parents could gain a lot by opening stating that their desire for and work towards inclusion education was part of a much broader scheme of educational reform. It is a clearly written and easily understood article that discusses general problems in the education system and how the practice of 'special' education is a part of this. He also traces the historical development of such systems. Knight's central argument is that education ought to embrace the goal of democratic citizenship for everyone. He explains exactly what this means through practical examples of curriculum formulation. Keyword: Education, School age
