   schema:description "The book examines how further education for students with learning difficulties and disabilities has emerged from an essentially elitist education system. It explores some of the issues shaping the entitlement to further education for these students in the 1990s. For many people the change that further education and training has undergone in recent years has been interpreted in terms of developing opportunities for student 'choice' and 'rights and entitlements'. Others, more sceptical, perceive a reduction of educational opportunity in favour of market-led notions of 'efficiency'. The book explores aspects of these concerns, including staff development and teaching and learning in this comparatively new area of work; tensions between further education and employment opportunities for students with learning difficulties and disabilities; and a cross-cultural perspective on attitudes and provisions."@en ;
