Kalyanpur, Maya; Harry, Beth; Skrtic, Tom
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v47 n2 p119-36 Jun 2000
This article contends that the equity and advocacy expectations embedded in the legal mandate for parent participation in the special education decision-making process directly contradict the hierarchy of professional status and knowledge on which the positivist paradigm of professionalism is based and are also in conflict with the values held by many families from culturally diverse backgrounds.
