SANTOS, Geandra Cláudia Silva  and  MARTINEZ, Albertina Mitjáns. School Social Subjectivity and the Challenges of School Inclusion of Students with Atypical Development. Rev. bras. educ. espec. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.2, pp.253-268. ISSN 1980-5470.

This study was carried out to analyze the main elements of social subjectivity in a public educational institution, to reflect on the concrete challenges to be confronted in the school inclusion of students with atypical development. School inclusion is a challenge diverse nature that compose the educational systems: organizational, political, pedagogical, cultural and subjective actors and institutions. Social subjectivity, one of the central categories of the subjectivity theory, is the theoretical framework defined to support this study. We chose, to achieve this purpose, the Qualitative Epistemology in order to anchor the theoretical and methodological construction. The research was conducted through case study, which corresponded to following the teaching experience of a public elementary school. We choose to written and unwritten instruments, among which we mention: interview, conversational dynamics, observations, analysis of school documents. School management members and teachers participated in the investigation. Regarding of the case study analysis, we believe that the dominant trend of social subjectivity of educational institutions proved to be unfavorable to face the challenges posed by inclusive education to school. In conclusion, we identified that confronting this reality requires a production of subjective senses on school factors, which favors rethinking conceptions and educational activities.
