The Scientific Knowledge Base of Special Education: Do We Know What We Think We Know?
Gallagher, Deborah J.
Exceptional Children, v64 n4 p493-502 Sum 1998
A case is made that the term "science" in reference to special education is misused, and that the methods of empiricist science are inappropriately applied to the study of special education. Article concludes that many of the criticisms leveled at special education can be traced back to this misunderstanding of science. (Author/CR)
