Kliptown Youth Project: Fulfilling the Promise of Equitable Education
Jones, Vita; Cote, Debra Lynn; Brandon, Regina R.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v48 n2 p115-120 Nov 2012
As part of a global movement, South Africa is embracing political and academic change designed to enhance the lives of all students. Small, gradual courses of actions serve to level the educational playing field for students with and without disabilities. Kliptown Youth Project by design serves as evidence of a small, but persistent transforming agent in the inclusive education of students with disabilities. Investigations into these practices serve as a catalyst for educators who support students with disabilities. This article highlights the complexity of educating disadvantaged student populations in South Africa. The strategies incorporated in the project may be generalized across all global educational settings to support diverse learners. By using these strategies, students with learning disabilities are better equipped to navigate through school and beyond. (Contains 2 tables.)
