Yes, Learning Disabilities Is Political; What Isn't?
Sleeter, Christine E.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v21 n4 p289-96 Fall 1998
In response to Kavale and Forness (EC 630 380), this article, rooted in the author's experiences as a learning disabilities teacher, discusses assumptions of the original article concerning social critiques and Marxism; diagnosis and classification for research or for pedagogy; validity of constructs and instruments for mental retardation; and science, politics, and world view.
