Publisher Description:

Righting Educational Wrongs brings together the work of scholars from the fields of disability studies in education and law to examine contemporary struggles around in-clusion and access to education. Specifically, contributors examine policies and practices as they contribute to or undermine educational access for individuals with disabilities.

Kanter and Ferri expand our understanding about the potential of legal studies to inform work around disability studies in education and vice versa. Contributors explore the intersections between disability studies, law, and education, forging a theoretical framework for thinking about educational access. Several essays take a critical look at some of the histories of exclusion in education and the ways that these exclusions have been upheld by a variety of educational policies and practices. Other essays reflect on how students with disabilities and their families experience the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act. By bridging various disciplines, Righting Educational Wrongs offers new insights to allow us to better understand the multiple perspectives and voices within the field of disability studies.
