Show Summary Details


This chapter sums up the key findings of this volume about the role of parents in the education of disabled children. It highlights the inequity in special education and the relation between study of disability and the study of social reproduction. This chapter suggests that this volume should not be considered as a definitive statement of the connections of privilege to special education but as a thumbnail sketch of a largely unexplored territory.
