The Dilemma of Difference: Enriching the Disproportionality Discourse with Theory and Context.
Artiles, Alfredo J.
Journal of Special Education, v32 n1 p32-36 Spr 1998
In examining the disproportionate representation of minority groups in special education, this article recommends the inclusion of philosophical and ethical perspectives to broader theoretical paradigms and the open acknowledgement in research efforts that issues related to ethnicity, race, and language background are highly contentious in our society. Inclusion of minority culture perspectives in research efforts is urged. (Author/DB)
