"Var är Emma!?": En essä om integrering av barn med problematik i skolan
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This essay contains two stories that reflect the reality I face as an educator, as well as a reflective discussion about my self-perceived dilemma. The dilemma reflects a classroom situation where I as an educator have trouble dividing my focus, my focus is either put on entire the class or on the child with special needs. Through this self-perceived situation I have started to question how children with special needs find their place in the school today. I discuss how I can handle and look at the unique situation that occurs when meeting this child.
Terms like integration, inclusion, segregation, social rights and the expression "a school for everyone" will be discussed in this text, as well as how we can connect these terms and expressions to the problems I find in the school system’s way of handling children with special needs.
I also highlight my dilemma from different ethical perspective. I chose to use Kants duty ethics, Mills utilitarianism (commercial ethics) and Aristotle’s virtue ethics to bring light on my dilemma, but also to find help in my professional role as a leisure pedagogue.
The main question my essay deals with is this: How can you, as an educator, have a focus on the class as a whole, but at the same time pay attention to the child with special needs?
