Abstract

White Paper 6, on Special Needs Education, released in July 2001, is a response from the South African government's Ministry of Education to the inclusion movement. In this article we examine systems discourses in this policy document. We discuss their implications, as we deconstruct them for inclusion or exclusion. We do not construct conclusions, but rather (de)construct the polyphony of voices, truths and realities speaking into and out of White Paper 6. This article thus offers an alternative approach to policy analysis.


Witskrif 6 : Spesiale Onderwysbehoeftes is in Julie 2001 vrygestel as 'n reaksie van die Ministerie van Onderwys van die Suid-Afrikaanse regering op die inklusiewe beweging. In hierdie artikel word die sistemiese diskoerse wat in hierdie beleidsdokument waargeneem word, bestudeer. Die implikasies wat die sistemiese diskoerse vir inklusie / eksklusie het, word bespreek. In hierdie artikel konstrueer ons nie gevolgtrekkings nie, maar (de)konstrueer ons liewer die veelstemmigheid ten opsigte van waarhede en realiteite wat neerslag vind in en spreek uit Witskrif 6. Hierdie artikel bied 'n alternatiewe strategie met betrekking tot die analise van beleidsdokumente.
