Former grad student, Colin Ong-Dean’s book published

Former grad student, Colin Ong-Dean’s new book, Distinguishing Disability: Parents, Privilege, and Special Education has just been published by University of Chicago Press. The book offers a detailed overview of how students in special education programs can have widely divergent experiences. For some, special education amounts to a dumping ground where schools unload their problem students, while for others, it provides access to services and accommodations that drastically improve chances of succeeding in school and beyond. Distinguishing Disability argues that this inequity in treatment is directly linked to the disparity in resources possessed by the students’ parents.
