Special Education in Transformation: A Call for the Renewal of Education as a Whole
Recent reconceptualizations of disabilities and criticisms of special education in western societies are presented. The main problems of special education services and provisions operated under the dual-system of education have been criticized from social, ethical, practical, theoretical and meta-theoretical perspectives. The reform of special education has been suggested in relation to the current paradigm transformation in physical and social sciences. Various proposals to unify services and professionals are reviewed. Implications for the Hong Kong education system and teacher-eduation are discussed.
