Challenging the Status Quo in Canada's Education System: The Legacy of Dr. Judy Lupart
Timmons, Vianne
Exceptionality Education International, v22 n2 p42-43 2012
Dr. Judy Lupart has had a distinguished career as a researcher, teacher, and leader in the field of education, and some of her most important work has stemmed from her creation of and continuing involvement in "Exceptionality Education Canada." Two articles she wrote for the journal, one in 1992 and one in 2002, are of particular note. To the author, these articles are a concise representation of what Dr. Lupart has excelled at throughout her academic career--challenging everyone to be analytical and to use research and evidence to identify new ways of approaching education for children with special needs. By supporting young researchers, setting high standards for Canadian research, and collaborating with others, Dr. Lupart has left an important legacy. Her work with "Exceptionality Education Canada" is a key part of that legacy, helping create a body of work that will be read by students and academics for many years, and will have a lasting impact on the way Canadians approach educational reform.
