Moving beyond Disproportionality: The Role of Culturally Responsive Teaching in Special Education
Shealey, Monika Williams; McHatton, Patricia Alvarez; Wilson, Vixen
Teaching Education, v22 n4 p377-396 2011
For over 30 years the field of special education has grappled with the problem of disproportionality. The discourse around this issue has predominately focused on possible causes, and yet the problem persists. This paper will provide an overview of the research on disproportionality and multicultural special education. In addition, the authors will examine the extent to which culturally responsive teaching has been implemented in special education and will propose future directions for research and practice. (Contains 2 tables.)
