Pedagogical practices and inclusion: the survival of integration in inclusive processes

This work presents an analysis of the inclusive process, revisiting the concepts of pedagogical practice and inclusion. With instruments from the fields of content analysis and discourse analysis, it analyses interviews with specialized care teachers, teachers in mainstream classrooms and managers. It describes inclusion as a concept whose network of meanings varies according to the interests involved, being conceived as a process that involves multiple agents and agencies and requires participation and as idealization, being defined a priori and to be incorporated uncritically. It points to the lack of knowledge of the specificities of learning and the potential of individuals and groups; the survival of the clinical model; the inclusion studies as an appendix of the training process; certain initiatives with more integrative than inclusive character. It intends to focus on the real school, through intervention and participatory research and to redo, from another angle, the issues already formatted on inclusive pedagogical practice.
