First published in 1982. After the economic crises of the late seventies and early eighties, remedial education was affected particularly badly. Due to lack of funding, a child had to be labelled and diagnosed before they could receive any remedial education. For some children this labelling produced unintended and destructive consequences. The author examines this context of failure, and analyses various approaches to remedial education.
