The Intersection of Gender, Race, and Disability: Latina Students in Special Education
Madigan, Jennifer C.
Multiple Voices for Ethnically Diverse Exceptional Learners, v8 n1 p45-60 Nov 2005
In this qualitative study the author used case study methods to examine perceptions of gender, race, and disability through the viewpoints and experiences of Latina students. The participants were secondary school girls with mild to moderate disabilities attending single-gender and coeducational special education classes on an urban school site in California. The results yield insights into the challenges Latina students face in special education programs and the complexities of gender identity and race in relationship to disability. (Contains 1 figure.)
