Soft Disability in Schools: Assisting or Confining At Risk Children and Youth?
Karagiannis, Anastasios
Journal of Educational Thought/Revue de la Pensee Educative, v34 n2 p113-134 Aug 2000
Examines the institutional construction of soft or mild disability by special education as a process of pre-incarceration in schools. Argues that labels of soft disability suspend the educational and citizenship participation of disadvantaged students. Outlines variation and inquiry as alternative concepts that may reverse the negative school dynamic between soft disability and (pre)incarceration. (Contains 78 references.) (VWC)
