Qualitative Research in Special Education: Notes Toward an Open Inquiry Instead of a New Orthodoxy?
Ferguson, Dianne L.; Ferguson, Philip M.
Journal of the Association for Persons with Severe Handicaps, v25 n3 p180-85 Fall 2000
This article discusses how interpretive research can challenge the special education field to think differently about what is already known and to factor in different ways of knowing and different meanings. Three dimensions of interpretive research are explored: "truth" value and accuracy, context and relations, and utility and relevance. (Contains references.) (CR)
