"Challenging Disabling Attitudes, Building an Inclusive Society": Considering the Role of Education in Encouraging Non-Disabled Children to Develop Positive Attitudes towards Disabled People
Beckett, Angharad E.
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v30 n3 p317-329 May 2009
In the United Kingdom, the introduction of the Disability Equality Duty 2006 has provided a new window of opportunity to promote the idea that education has a role to play in changing non-disabled children/young people's attitudes towards disabled people. This article explores the issues raised by the application of the Disability Equality Duty to English schools. The remainder of the article then seeks to 'map the territory' for future research into the role that education might play in challenging disabling attitudes and building an inclusive society. (Contains 5 notes.)
