Human Rights and Special Education in the Developing Countries.
de Braslavsky, Berta P.
The paper provides some significant data, from the economic, social, cultural, and educational context, on some of the obstacles to fundamental rights in Latin America; and deals with special education in these countries, its scope and resources, and the attitudes and philosophical assumptions which help or hinder its expansion. Among recommendations for the future are that specific action be undertaken to prevent social causes attacking those children who are more liable to aggression and that funds be appropriated for more research.
