The Intersection of Cultural Diversity and Special Education in Catalonia: The Subtle Production of Exclusion through Classroom Routines
Paniagua, Alejandro
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v48 n2 p141-158 Jun 2017
Drawing on ethnographic data collected in two primary schools, this paper examines the nature of the exclusion experienced by three children of linguistically, culturally, and socioeconomically diverse families labeled as having special education needs. Ambiguities and dilemmas surrounding the intersection of cultural diversity and special education are described, and ways in which the routines performed in mainstream classrooms produce a seemingly harmless, but pervasive, form of exclusion are discussed.
