Economic Recession and Inequality in Education: Children Needing Special Services in Focus.
Somersalo, Heidi; Solantaus, Tytti
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v45 n3 p233-48 Sep 2001
Studied equity in education during a national recession in Finland in which the supply of special services for children decreased. Results for a sample of 906 sixth graders and their teachers show a considerable gap between need and supply. The selection process was biased against boys in remedial \instruction and internalizing children in psychological counseling. Selection favored children with more resources. (SLD)
