Masking the Social in Educational Knowledge: The Case of Learning Disability Theory.
Carrier, James G.
American Journal of Sociology, v88 n5 p948-74 Mar 1983
Learning disability researchers often misconstrue their object of study, unexplained underachievement, by interpreting it neurologically and ignoring the classroom environment and the social forces shaping it. It is important to recognize that academic performance is shaped by larger extra-educational and political forces in society. (Author/KC)
