Project Details

Description

This network investigates the changing nature of special education in six jurisdictions, interrogating the relationship between policy rhetoric, statistical evidence and practice on the ground. This extends and critiques the work of bodies such as the OECD and the EADSNE which publish national statistics provided by member states, but do not necessarily have the resources or mandate to interrogate the statistics and their underpinning discourses. The participating jurisdictions will be treated as critical cases, with a focus on their distinctive characteristics.
