About the Edition

Building on Skrtic (1991), this study examines views of disability-specific parent groups and civic parent groups on the nature of disability, special education and inclusive education in Ontario. It shows that, unlike disability parent group representatives, civic group representatives support a continuum of placements for students with disabilities rather than fully inclusive education. Members of civic groups tend to subscribe to a pathological-medical view of disability and believe in the necessity and benefits of the special education system to provide services and supports for students with disabilities. Civic group advocacy efforts focus not on transforming the system so that all students can learn together in the general classroom, but instead on improving the special education system. The lack of a common understanding of inclusive education between these two groups has led to what exists today: various civic and disability groups with disparate agendas, and a fragmentation of advocacy efforts.
