Notes
Very good condition, very good dust wrapper (spine sunned) medium octavo, blue boards, x & 179 pages. "Between 1955 and 1980 the number of pupils in schools for the maladjusted in Britain increased tenfold. Between 1970 and 1977 the number of units for "difficult" pupils also increased tenfold and went on increasing. Some observers see this as a welcome advance in special education, others as an extension of discrimination. The authors of this study highlight the dangers of this provision being used as a form of social control, which may be imposed on children whose only failure is an inability to fit into a stereotype of the ideal student. These include the hyper-active child, the black or immigrant child, the child with "problems", the "ineducable" child." [QP]
