Edukacja i niepełnosprawność: wyrównywanie szans czy reprodukcja społecznych nierówności

Jolanta Rzeźnicka-Krupa


Current discussions on social issues and educational inequalities in Poland usually identify them influenced by factors linked with gender, race, ethnicity or social class. Being student with disability is defined as having objective, individual limitations in skills and competences required by the educational system. Thus, pupils with disabilities are usually perceived as lacking 'biological capital', defined in terms of physical ability or cognitive competence, necessary for obtaining educational success. Structural features of educational system, which generates differences and inequalities determining particular fate and social position of people with disabilities seem to be neglected. The goal of the article is to identify some determinants conditioning social and pedagogical practices, typical for integrative and inclusive education. The main question the authoress asks and goes on searching the answer is: does education for „special needs students” support their development and equalize educational chances or rather reproduces social inequalities and empowers self-exclusion processes?
